The town is most famous for its mountains with caves, pavilions, temples, ancestor halls, old trees and tablets. Almost every corner of the town presents a typically Chinese scene and presents a marvelous photo opportunity. Huangyao was built in 927 BC and was a flourishing and wealthy town then.
The town street is steady and even after hundreds of years’ serving. Marvelously according to traditional Chinese Fengshui, the layout of the town’s architectures is of southland style displaying the primitive simplicity with blue bricks and black tiles.
