Charming - utterly charming. Just ignore a few of the more recent constructions and you'll feel like you've been tele-ported to the 16thC or whenever. There are 8 villages all connected by the Wind and Rain Bridges or pathways. The drive to get here is long and can be arduous with single lane roads and lots of truck traffic. It... More

Visited the area in November 2016 recomended by our guide book as one of the top things to see in Guangxi: extremely disapointing.. The villages are turned into a show of decadence. Hordes of tourists, trash and construction everywhere (mostly hotels I assume), while the village people seem not to be getting much of this touristic development - which is... More

We drove across this bridge as our hotel was just on the other side. Other than it is built for cars (single lane traffic), this bridge is still a delight to see. Situated among actvely-farmed fields in a river valley (with working bamboo water wheels), it is picturesque and charming beyond words

This is a very beautiful part of China and is such a short trip from Guilin on the High speed rail (about 40 minutes from Guilin North station to San Jiang and then around 30 minutes by bus.) We stayed here overnight and thoroughly enjoyed the peace and quiet. The area is still not overly touristy but do be careful... More

Come early and preferably during sunny days, as walking around the village could post a challenge during rainy days. Pay the entrance fee when you alight at the entrance of the bridge. Get your cash ready for some local souvenirs and help the local villagers on the bridge. A lovely village to wonder around and perhaps take part in the... More

The bridge is located in Dong Autonomous County of Sanjiang, Guangxi. It was finished in 1924, all the project was in the mortise and tenon work, without any a single iron nail, on both sides of the bridge had long benches for people taking a rest. It’s the combination of bridge, corridor and pavilion and is the architectural symbol of... More

First saw this kind of bridge at the entrance of Longji, a smaller version. This bridge is very interesting as the top with pavilions look like temples if the stone structure is not shown.

The village is inhabited by the Dong tribal people, a minor ethnic group in China (most Chinese people are of the Han tribe). It houses the traditional drum tower, wind-rain bridge, and has some traditional dance-song performances by the inhabitants. The walkways are a little bumpy, but still a great place to immerse yourself into Chinese culture and the Dong... More

Altho' it was a wet day, the walk across this Chengyang wind and rain covered bridge was a very rewarding experience. There were 2 other smaller wind and rain bridges in this Ma'an village and the round trip (walking) took about an hour. One of the highlights of a trip to southern China
