It is also a sort of way to learn about the local farmers' simple and natural life and promote green, low-carbon and healthy living ideas by doing these as follows: exploring the mysterious ancient villages in Huizhou (in Lingshan Village, you may see some outlet buildings, pavilions, bridges, arches and ancestral halls), enjoying the unique and intoxicating rurality (you may also see the well-proportioned terraces, tea bushes, bamboo forests everywhere. You can breathe the fresh air deeply here and participate in farmer's seasonal field production activities); experiencing the unique culture of ancient villages and enjoying the traditional folk arts and crafts (Lingshan village is surrounded by green hills and bamboo forests and the villagers are all good at bamboo feat.
