An arch in Xidi

Xidi (西递; Xīdì​​) is a village in Anhui Province in China. Together with Hongcun it's incribed in the UNESCO World Heritage List as "Ancient Villages in Southern Anhui".

Get in[edit]

By bus or taxi from Tunxi (taxi ¥150-180)

Get around[edit]


Nice old and charming city without cars and narrow streets. During the daytime many Chinese tourists groups are walking around but it is less than in Hongcun. Besides tourist you will see many art students painting pictures everywhere. During night is much more silent.




Try the small restaurants. Often you can walk into the kitchen and choose the ingredients of your dish.  Tip: ask for the price when you order to avoid surprises after ordering the bill.


  • Rice Wine Brewery. Close to the entrance of the city (just 50 meters after entering the small streets) there is a rice wine brewery. There you can try different kinds of wine for free plus having a glass at the bar.


  • Xidi Travel Lodge. Check-out: noon. Nice clean hotel directly at the entrance of the city. The breakfast is served in an old building. If you prefer western breakfast you can ask at the reception for it (surcharge ¥20 per person). ca. ¥500.
