Today, you’ll start village trip by visiting Lingshan Village in Shexian Country. Have a stroll on the Lingshan Ancient Water Street, which is 1100 meters long, 1 meter wide, and paved by the blue flagstone. The village is surrounded by a vast bamboo grove, named Lingshan Bamboo Forest, which is the most famed site here. See how Lingshan people make themselves the bamboo household, bamboo basket, bamboo hat, etc. Then the students will have a chance sitting down and learningto make a bamboo handcraft themselves. After the work, you can keep this authentic Chinese souvenir.

Later, take a short transfer to Tangmo Village. It's a small peaceful village, famous for both its noticing natural landscape and cultural glamour. Unlike Hongcun and Xidi Ancient Villages, It is tranquil and away from crowds of tourists. The highlight of the day must be the special Chinese cultural experience - Stele Rubbing. It’s a kind of printing technology from ancient time. Students will get to know the knowledge and try to make the rubbings personally. Outside the Tangmo Village, a vast area of tea is growing. If it’s the right time (generally in March-May), we will have the chance to pick some tea leaves, and taste a cup of local tea.

At last, we will visit the third village, Chengkan Village. Chengkan was originally built in the Three Kingdoms Period (220-280), and it was designed with the layout of the Eight Trigrams-Kan in I Ching (the Book of Changes).
