Welcome to Guìdé


Guìdé, stuck in limbo between boom town and old town, is the perfect epitome of modern China. Walk past the slick facade in the old town and you'll find crumbling ruins and residents clinging on to life in packed earthen houses. It's the space between the old and new which makes Guìdé so intriguing. Wandering along the remains of the Qing dynasty walls through the back lanes behind the old town towards the Yellow River offers a glimpse at China that will no longer be here in the next couple of years. So get here while you can.
