Completely built in wood at the end of Qing Dynasty, the three-storeyed architectures in the village are typical of Zhuang traditions in the north of Guangxi, with high feet. Zhuang people have settled here for hundreds of years. They still wear exquisite clothes with Zhuang features and live a pristine life from generation to generation.
