It is well known that China is growing explosively and by now is the second biggest economy of the world. But what are the best places to experience ancient China in a place where traditions, religion, customs, beliefs, folklore, architecture, ancient heritage and nature are not caught up by China's modern development?

    To see a village barely touched by modern life consider Cuandixia, about 90km outside of Beijing: http://wikitravel.org/en/Cuandixia + http://www.google.com/images?q=cuandixia over 7 years ago

    The west (Xinjiang and Gansu provinces are great places to visit which are still very traditional) and southwest of China (Guizhou and Yunnan I have both been to and they are absolutely amazing!)

    I have hiked in both Guizhou and Yunnan as well, GPS navigators do work and they are a viable resource! over 7 years ago

    in my eyes, Lijiang is a good choice for its natural beauty and rural customs.
    if possible, i think it is wise to have a trip to China Rural. it is of clean air and water. over 7 years ago
