Photographer's Note

back to my series of little visited places in China
(and China being a big country, there are lots of them...)


Yuliang is a historic river port village on the Lian river. It, basically, consists of two rows of crumbling houses along an old cobbled street. In ancient times Yuliang was a busy regional trading post, dealing in wood, salt and tea.

The village can be visited from Shexian, the historic capital of the Huizhou region, which on today's map you'll find in southern Anhui and northern Jiangxi.

There is a small entrance fee, the price of which includes one of the local youngsters guiding you around. You are welcome to visit some of the town's old houses and stores.


This picture was taken from the main street looking into one of the riverside houses. A fisherman is repairing nets, a typical afternoon activity.

(The title refers to a famous garden in Suzhou.)


hope you like it
