This private tour takes you to two ancient villages in Fangshan District, Beijing, 80 kilometers from the city center. Nanjiao Village and Shuiyu Village were built in the early Ming Dynasty over 600 years ago. They are much older than the same kind of other ancient villages in the area. Unlike Cuandixia, a popular tourist destination, Nanjiao and Shuiyu ancient villages are virtually undiscovered. All of the cultural relics in these villages are still in their original condition, without any restoration.
