Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Our lovely guide Echo took us late afternoon to this old street. Lots of interesting shops and restaurants but quite crowded. Worth a look though.

    Chengkan village has well preserved residential architecture from Ming Dynasty (1368-1644 A.D.). Chengkan village is also widely known as Bagua Village (八卦) relating to Taiji philosophy that focuses on two aspects – Yin and Yang. This can be seen in a lot of the old residential houses. It is highly recommended that you hire a guide. If you can understand Chinese, then local guides can be hired at village entrance for a small fee of rmb50 (the guide will take you through the village and explain a lot of Fengshui design of the buildings to you. The tour would take around 1 hour and if you want to spend longer than it is another rmb50). The local village has very limited English speaking guide. While you can tour the village yourself, a lot of cultural knowledge is lost without someone explaining. While this is not as tourist or famous as Hongcun and Xidi, it is definitely worth a visit.

    It is a 10 mins hike from Yuping cable car station. This place is crowded with tour groups. There are few food and snacks stalls. A good place for stop over and toilet break. Many tourists are taking selfies and personal photos of the iconic Greeting Pine, which can be seen from the platform down a few steps. Personally, this Greeting Pine is nothing spectacular as pine trees are everywhere. I think the pine trees at Refreshing Terrace and Black Tiger Pine are much more imposing.

    Nice path leading through the valley. But this season you need to walk all theway to the Green Pearl Pool to see the clear and clean water, as emerald is in your mind!

    This is our second visit and we’re content that we stopped again. This place is just so peaceful and relaxing and that is what you’ll need after visiting some of the touristy spots in Huangshan. There is not much to do, souvenirs to buy but what it has is a nice place to take a relaxing stroll in nature.

    My husband and I were in awe of the natural beauty of the Yellow Mountain. Our guide Phillip Tong, with China Highlights, gave us an exceptional experience at our pace. (As an older couple this was greatly appreciated.) He shared his vast knowledge of history and cultural significance as we trekked over and around the mountain, touring Bishan, and Hongcun. We concluded our trip by making fish lanterns. China Highlights has once again provided us with great memories.

    We're a group of 6 that had a great time. Thomas was patient and took great care of us. He provided us with raincoats and spike shoes in the event we needed that. Thomas can easily converse in English over Wechat where we got most of our pre trip admin sorted out.

    We stayed at Xihai Hotel and it was splendid. Do not pack more than what is essential, you need to hike with whatever you bring up with you.
