The interest in people to explore the East has been growing significantly in the recent past. China has become a hot spot for tourists. One part of China has left the world fascinated with its development while there are still places that cherish the ancient life style of the Chinese. One such place is Qingyan Ancient Town, located in the Guizhou Province.
There are a number of Guizhou attractions. There are quite a few places to stay around here and are well suited for tourists. Some of the hotels in this region, such as Anantara Guiyang Resort organizes special tours which allows tourists to explore and experience the cultural and historical significance of the city.
The town was mainly built for military reasons due to its geographical location as it was easy to send military messages. There was also a stationed army here. The town has since gone through various restoration works and become a historically and culturally important site. The town is considered to be a small town however there are many important sites and architectural relics. The culture in this town is considered to be of great influence. The town was built mainly with stones and impressive stone walls can be seen dividing the town. The town is home to over 30 different types of monasteries, temples, cabinets, caves, palaces and courtyards. These are all considered to be masterpieces of the Ming and Qing Dynasty. The works that still stand are well appreciated by all visitors. The ancient business streets of Qingyan are also worth a walk through. The highlight of this Qingyan is the classical wooden houses that line the streets. Roaming around the old town can be quite tiring, but luckily, there are various tea houses here where one can enjoy some of the local delicacies as well as catch some rest.
