The Grand Mansion of Huizhou Merchants, where Huizhou refers to an old prefecture that is the predecessor of today's Anhui Province. The Grand Mansion has never been a private mansion. It's actually a courtyard museum of both original and replicated structures and period articles spanning through the Ming Dynasty, Qing Dynasty and Republic of China. Huizhou used to be an affluent and prosperous area boasting trade, feudal education and scholar bureaucrats with both power and treasure. In the Mansion, there are 29 residential buildings restored from scattered locations, hundreds of rooms, 48 patios, 1,580 struts and innumerable exceedingly intricate carvings and embossments made of wood, stone and brick. There is also a splendid garden, a pompous opera stage with viewing stand plus a couple of high-standing memorial arches. The size of the entire ground is 13,000 square meters (140,000 square feet), with plenty to explore! Our guide will introduce you to the Huizhou school of Chinese architecture, some local customs, tell stories, touch on a little bit of China's history, explain the symbolisms of details and last but not least, try to share his views of Chinese as a nation based on his mid-lifelong experience, observations and philosophical reflection. $79 for each additional screen (does not apply to corporate customers.) * This tour is not designed for our corporate customers.
