These villages have been listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites due to their traditional Southern Anhui-style architecture. Many films were shot here, including the Oscar-winning Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, and Nanping. Hongcun is arranged in the shape of an ox with the nearby hill (Leigang) interpreted as the head, and the two trees standing on it as the horns.
