Huang Yao is a famous town with a history of about 900 years, lying in Shaoping County, Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region. The village covers about 3.6 square kilometers. In Huangtao, there are well-preserved buildings dating back to the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) and Qing Dynasty (1644-1911). The ancient town’s name derives from the fact that many residents had the surname Huang and Yao. The village is famous for its Guilin karst landscapes that is immersed with the ancient city architecture. The American film “The Painted Veil” featured filming in Huang Yao and no doubt has brought more attention and visitors to this ancient village.

What continues to make Huang Yao an interesting to visit is that traditional life still remains where you can see chickens walking freely through the streets and residents washing their laundry in the river. When walking through the cobbled streets surrounded by the traditional architecture you can truly feel at ease with the calm and relaxing atmosphere. There are a total of eight streets to tour in the village that crisscross with one another. Some of the main attractions of the village are the well preserved temples that date back to the Ming dynasty and have more than 10 pavilions. One of the most famous pavilions has to be the Wenming pavilion which is still used today by locals as a place of worship.
