Lai Nu Pavilion


For superb views over Chenyang's bridge, eight villages and beyond, take the 20-minute trek up to this hilltop pavilion, which is appropriately named 'beauty' in the Dong language. To get here, cross Chengyang Bridge and take a right, and after 200m you'll reach the signed trailhead. The path loops over to the other side of town, so you don't need to backtrack.
