In the morning, I came to the ancient village with the most primitive ecological atmosphere in Guangzhou. The only Lingnan water village to Xiaozhou Village in the city, Xiaoqiao, Gushu and Guxiang are full of historical charm, unique water environment and profound cultural heritage, attracting many Artists come here to create art, and become the first choice for Lingnan and even the national artists to find inspiration, sketching and photography.
Xiaozhou Village is located at the southeastern end of Haizhu District of Guangzhou City, south of the Pearl River South River Road, across the river and Panyu, and facing the Paifang River in the east. It is said that the past is densely shaded, surrounded by rivers, clam shells, and a beautiful landscape of Lingnan waters. However, with the development of the tourism industry, visitors have come to the fore, and the literati competed. In order to earn more rent, the villagers began to demolish old houses on a large scale. The ancient buildings were not well protected, and they were interspersed with new houses and various restaurant shops. Even so, it still does not stop many literary youths from discovering the truth.
Xiaozhou is a small village, which faithfully retains the rural landscape of old Lingnan region to this day. The village also has cafes, tea houses, eateries, and art studios, and is a favorite destination for young artists. With local homes lining the river, and ancient, century-old banyan trees everywhere, the living environment here is extremely beautiful. A unique feature of the village are the oyster shell houses, which are constructed mainly with oyster shells. These houses demonstrate the wisdom of the ancient villagers of Xiaozhou. Xiaozhou has many ancestral halls, which are paved with strips of bluestone and feature high-rise eaves. They are truly worth a look.
