In the morning, go on a brief visit to Hongcun Village, an age-old village and UNESCO World Heritage Site more than 800 years old right at the base of Mount Huangshan. Often enveloped in fog and pond mist, the whitewashed village is a most picturesque one that was prominently featured in the famous movie, "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon". Another testament to Hongcun Village's beauty is the inspiration that it has given many Chinese artists throughout the centuries. Afterwards, we will take you to the airport for your trip back home or elsewhere.
