Peitian []

Peitian, nestled in the deep mountains of western Fujian Province, is a well-preserved ancient Hakka (Kejia in Chinese) village. Formed between the Ming Dynasty (1368- 1644) and the Qing Dynasty (1616- 1911), the town has a long history of 800 years. But after hundreds years, the area is still undisturbed and retains its original appearance. With a population of just over 1,400, the ancient architectural complex consists of 30 grand mansions, 21 ancient ancestral temples, six ancient Chinese schools, two memorial arches and a 1000-meter-long ancient street of cobblestones. Travelers can not only experience the unique local customs, but also enjoy a quiet and peaceful lifestyle. photo gallery>>
