Trip Moments

Liyuan is an independent garden. It is a villa garden built by Mr. Xie Weili, a Chinese-American overseas Chinese. It is a garden that has been built for ten years. In my impression, such a large garden should be appreciated by the emperor, but here... its built by people themselves. ... rich. Liyuan Garden is divided into three parts: large garden, small garden and villa area. They are separated by artificial river or wall, and are connected by bridge pavilion and cloister. There is a garden in the garden and there is a scene in the scenery. There are six villas and a tower in the villa area, including the Chinese and Western buildings. The interior and decoration are rich in luxury and elegance. Relying on the Grand View Garden depicted in "Dream of Red Mansions", it is an eclectic mix of classical architecture of Chinese gardens, and integrates the architectural features of villas in Europe and America at that time, achieving the combination of Chinese and Western cultures, and thus has the reputation of "small view garden". The place to enter the gate is the Kaiping Diaolou Group Museum. In this museum, we can see the history of almost all the towers in Kaiping and the history of the formation of the park. It is still worth seeing. Going forward, there is a micro-carved landscape of the tower. It is very architectural. It has a mottled effect when it is placed outdoors for a long time. A small iron window is very cute. Look carefully at the door. The stairs and the stairs inside are all made, its awesome! Go further and enter the villa area. There are six villas in the villa area.

There are many overseas Chinese in Jiangmen, but the most distinctive feature of the building is Kaiping. Zuli Village, located in Tangkou Town, is a representative part of the Kaiping Diaolou Group. A few years ago, the director of Jiang Wens high-box movie "Let the Bullets Fly" greatly enhanced the popularity of Zili Village, and many foreign tourists came to visit because of the movie. Zuli Village has a lot to come. It is said that at the beginning of the village, there were only two houses in the whole village, and later developed to 63 families. The overseas Chinese and Hong Kong and Macao compatriots exceeded the resident population. The owners and descendants of all kinds of dilapidated houses scattered in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and Southeast Asia. Zili Village is as low-lying as many Kaiping villages, and floods and floods are frequent; in addition, in the past, the village has been scarce because of the scarcity of men, causing bandits, and the "squatter" is the invention of the wisdom of the local people. This characteristic building has a rich western style, while retaining some details of the Chinese architecture. The clever thing is that the building builders consider the anti-theft and anti-theft features. For example, every floor has a gunshot, as long as the criminals are close to the building, Shoot from the gun eye or throw pebbles, alkaline water, water guns and other things to drive away the enemy. Zili Village retains many old mansions such as Longsheng Building, Yangxiu Villa, Ball House, Yunxiao Building, Ju'an Building, Yaoguang Villa, Zhulin Building, Zhen'an Building, Anzhen, Yi The agricultural building, Ye Shengju, the official residence, the residence, the Zhan, and so on. The mansion in the "luxury house" is the number of Mingshilou. The building is the "home" of Chow Yun-fat in the movie "Let the Bullets Fly", and it is also the value of the various buildings of "Let the Bullets Fly".
