Lets enjoy the unique charm of Lingnan countryside!
Songtang Village originated from Song Dynasty (1225-1264) and has a history of nearly 800 years.
It is also known as the "Hanlin Village" in southern China. For hundreds of years, it was the cradle of many talents with high ranks in the imperial examinations and prominent scholars. Songtang Village has become a living fossil of Chinas imperial examination system.
Songtang Village is very festive. Chuse Parade, the Birth Celebration of Guan God, Burning Fanta in the Mid-Autumn Festival, the Birth Celebration of Confucius, Hanlin Cultural Festival... Many traditional festivals with the characteristics of Confucianism and filial piety are preserved here and passed down from generation to generation.

Fujing Community creatively explores the development model of "ancestral temple + culture", which endows ancestral temple with new social functions and cultural connotations. With a history of more than 500 years, Chens Grand Ancestral Hall has been transformed into a cultural center for local people.
Known as the "longevity village", Changqi Village has a history of 655 years and profound culture with many old trees and ancient houses. There are nearly 100 well-preserved ancient buildings that can be dated back in the Ming and Qing Dynasties.
Changqi Village has developed a number of tourism products, such as Sanshui Lubao Hot Spring Resort, "Football +" Project, North River Cured Food Festival, Sanshui Fishing World Industrial Park, Art Creation Base, Changqi Village B&B Project, etc.
Changqi Village is also known for its hot spring. Lubao hot spring is the third "radon hot spring" found in China. In recent years, the ancient village has been revitalized and upgraded. The new Wenbi Mountain Park has become a place for villagers to relax and tourists to take photos.
