Huanglongxi ancient town is over 1700 years old, located about 50 km from Chengdu in the Sichuan province of China. It is named after the Huanglong river which flows through it.

Thanks for sharing these beautiful photos! i love eastern ancient architectures, I'm surprised to see the photos of zhenyuan village, with the news of china's pollution so prominent these days, it's amazing there is still such pretty village in china. Hopefully, the mass construction of commercial buildings, residential places and change of time won't destroy all these masterpieces from the past.

I like the use of vibrant colours in chinese architecture, very different from european archicture, both are beautiful though. Also, I like the way chinese style buildings blends with natural surrounding like river, lake, pond and garden, looks very tranquil.

I really really adore ancient architecture, not only china but also other ancient architectures. This is so amazing, modern building has marvelous construction engineering but it has much lesser artistic beauty.
