Additional Information

Introduction

The Kaiping Diaolou is a series of small fortresses and defensive towers located throughout Jiangmen's Kaiping. This is the famous hometown of countless overseas Chinese scattered around the world. Mixing Chinese and western architectural styles, these towers are distributed across the landscape. Many of them can be entered and some can even be climbed. This is a very worthwhile place to visit. Numerous scenes from the movie "Let the Bullets Fly" were filmed here. Three of the primary attractions in the area include the Li Garden, the Majianglong Ancient Village and Zili Village. The Li Garden is a garden villa, which was built early in the 20th century while Majianglong Ancient Village and Zili Village are two of the primary locations to see Diaolou fortresses.
