Yantaocun Village Adventure

Hey Hey and a Big G'Day toya,

Yantoucan Village is one of many ancient picturesque villages that can be found scattered along the beautiful river waters of the Nanxijiang river region.

The Nanxi River is located in the county of Yongjia, Zhejiang Province, 23 kilometers from the city proper of Wenzhou. Flowing eastward for 150 kilometers and containing 36 bends and 72 shoals, the river and its banks form the Nanxi River Scenic Zone, which covers an area of 625 square kilometers, and is one of China's famous state-level scenic zones. With beautiful natural and man-made landscapes, as well as countryside scenes, the zone has more than 800 scenic spots scattered in its seven major tourist areas, including the Nanxi River, Yantou, Shiweiyan, Shuiyan, and Sihai Hill.

The Nanxi River Valley has produced a brilliant culture and many outstanding personalities. From the Tang Dynasty (618-907) through the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), the river valley was home to over 600 successful candidates in the highest imperial examinations. During his tenure of office in Yongjia, Xie Lingyun (385-433) visited all the landscapes in the county and composed many fantastic poems to eulogize its beauty. Xie was considered the originator of China's landscape poems, making the Nanxi River the birthplace of this genre of poetry.
