Welcome to Little Lǐkēng
Little Lǐkēng (小李坑; Xiǎo Lǐkēng) is the most popular village in the area due to its Song dynasty houses and buzzing laneways. The walk in from the car park is beautiful, despite the train line running overhead: winding, lantern-strewn river with punters offering lifts on bamboo barges, narrow footbridges dissecting the valley floor. After sunset, visitors fill the riverside lanes for chrysanthemum tea, rice wine and trinkets, snapping photos of rooftops glowing under red lanterns and old-fashioned street lamps.
Note, there is another, plain-old Lǐkēng (李坑) village in the north of the county.
