There are of course many ancient villages all around China, and most are set up as tourist spots to show visitors a little of the lives of people in history in China.
It was a 90 minute bus trip from Shaoxing, and the entry to the park was through rice fields that were currently being harvested. Longmen ancient village is midst the mountains of Longmen.
The place was very quiet and there were few visitors - quite a change from most of our visits to tourists spots.
It is a very large complex and in some places hard to identify the ancient buildings and the more modern ones, but in any case it was very interesting place.

There really is so much to see. At one point we were attracted by traditional Chinese music and we came across a performance of Chinese opera.
