The food here in the village is fabulous, and you will be able to try many authentic Chinese favourites. Try some steamed black chicken filled with herbs and other condiments, pork hocks or a signature salad. The dishes are often accompanied by a plate of boiled rice, China’s staple food.
Take a spin on the wooden ferris wheel which is powered by man alone. As you sit in the chair, three men will climb up onto the ferris wheel and will use their body weight to get the wheel turning. A truly unique experience. You can also try your hand at shooting a bow and arrow to try and hit a target, or can just wander around and take pictures of this interesting cultural village.
