Kaiping Diaolou is located in the suburb of Kaiping City, Guangdong Province. It shows the Chinese overseas Chinese culture and its unique world architectural art landscape. Liyuan, an important scenic spot of Kaiping Diaolou, is located in Beiyi Town, Tangkou Town. It integrates traditional gardens, Lingnan Waterfront and Western architectural styles. There are 15 different style towers in Zili Village, which is an outstanding representative of Kaiping towers in its flourishing period. There are 7 well-preserved towers and 8 Western-style villas in Majianglong Block. There are Chikan Ancient Town, Film and Television City, etc. Tickets are a little expensive. It's better to book tickets online. The scenic spots of Kaiping Diaolou are scattered, so navigation is necessary. Although there are traffic cars between scenic spots, they are most suitable for self-driving leisure travel.
Kaiping Diaolou, located in Kaiping City, Jiangmen City, Guangdong Province, is a special type of Chinese vernacular architecture. It is a multi-storey tower building integrating defensive, residential and Chinese and Western architectural arts. Its characteristics are Chinese and Western residential buildings, with a variety of styles, such as ancient Greece, ancient Rome and Islam. On June 25, 2001, it was approved by the State Council to be listed in the fifth batch of national key cultural relics protection units. On June 28, 2007, "Kaiping Diaolou and Ancient Villages" was approved by the 31st World Heritage Congress of New Zealand and formally listed in the World Heritage List, becoming China's 35th World Heritage Site, which gave birth to China's first World Heritage Project of Overseas Chinese Culture.
It's worth visiting. It's surprising. There are all kinds of facilities in it. At that time, it was oceanic, too modern. They buy back a lot of articles and architectural drawings and photographs to build their own home (blockhouse) in their hometown by earning money overseas. It has been circulated to this day, so that later generations can see the real things. They are very admired and great.
Kaiping Diaolou is located in the territory of Kaiping City, scattered all over rural towns. We drove from the airport to Kaiping, and there were more than a dozen in one village and two or three in the other. Changing from Shenhai Expressway to 555 County Road south, through Zili Village to Chikan Town, continuous 10 kilometers, is spectacular. This block building is a unique local building in China, which integrates defense, residence and Chinese and Western architectural art. There were many styles of ancient Greece, Rome and Islam, plus the defensiveness needed in that historical era. Everywhere towers, each building has a different architectural style and decorative art. It stands in the green countryside with a variety of styles. This kind of picture is shocking. Kaiping's towers are scattered, almost every town has more than one or two towers in every village, but the style is different from the old and the new. Self-reliance village is a point of concentrated ticket sales, we did not buy tickets to enter, just enjoy the most original rural towers.
Kaiping Diaolou is scattered among Kaiping wilderness and farmland. It's a World Heritage Site and the location of the movie Let the Bullets Fly. The best way is to rent a bicycle in Chikan Ancient Town, slowly experience, you can first go to Liyuan, self-reliance village. Physically strong companions can also go to Ma Jianglong. Very good.
Diaolou, in fact, is the house of former rich people. There are several buildings in the blockhouse group, three of which can be visited. They are about 4-5 stories. The stairs are a little steep. Others should be the residences of local residents or not open to the outside world. There aren't many places to take pictures, and the decorations in the three buildings are similar. You can finish the tour in about 1-2 hours. Attention *** Parking lot says 60 yuan will take you into the scenic spot. Don't be pitted. Because there are staff checking tickets under the three buildings. Parking is convenient, 5 yuan per time.
The only World Heritage Site in the Pearl River Delta, together with the scenic spot where bullets fly, has become a must for weekends after business trips. Several main blockhouses are located in the area of tens of square kilometers. If they are not self-driving, they are better chartered. It is possible to outsource taxis at bus stations. In one day, I went to Majianglong, Jinjiang Li and Zili Village, as well as Chikan ancient town, and tasted Niuzao in Chikan.
The gardens and self-reliance villages are well worth visiting. They have pleasant scenery, different features and convenient transportation. Kaiping Diaolou is a special type of Chinese vernacular architecture. It is a multi-storey tower-style building which integrates defense, residence and Chinese and Western architectural arts. It is characterized by a combination of Chinese and Western residential buildings, with a variety of styles such as ancient Greece, ancient Rome and Islam. And with rapeseed flowers, there is a unique beauty in the Diaolou.
2018.02.21 I'm here to write a strategy, probably the most economical strategy, suitable for a person to travel and accommodation by bus. First of all, accommodation, blockade tribes and film and television city, you can see the price on the booking network, you can accept the price you can skip. A minute's walk from Chikan Bus Station to Zili Village. At the intersection of the three forks, you can see a cattle grocery store and a hotel next to it. In 801 nights, you pay the rent for two nights first, because it takes two days to walk down the scenic spot, and a day is rather tense. Bus, first from Chikan Station (Station) take 613 Road (Baidu shows 13 Road?) Get on the bus and tell the driver to go to Jinjiang, he will tell you. Don't follow Baidu's instructions in Chigang, it will take a long way, in front of Chigang Industrial Zone station, swim back to the original road, in Chigang, walk for five or six minutes to Ma Jianglong. Ma Jianglong arrives at Liyuan, Zili Village has scenic spot pick-up truck, which only passes through these three points, without passing Chikan Town. It starts at one hour and stops at four in the afternoon. Plan ahead. If you can't catch the bus in the scenic spot, you'll have to go a long way.
