Villages to preserve local culture

The Ministry of Housing has announced that 16 Hangzhou villages would be provided financial support this year that will allow the local government to preserve its distinctive architecture and local way of life. The villages have resisted the tide of changes that has swept across China. To protect the old structures, some local governments have relocated residents to new houses.

Not long ago, Dongziguan Village created a sensation on the social platforms with their three-story houses. The black-roofed and white-walled houses with courtyards, cooking benches and storage areas are considered the finest traditions of rural homes.

In addition to architectures, forests were protected, sewage was treated and new infrastructure was built, which attracted tourists and gave a boom to the local economy. Approximately two hours’ drive from downtown Hangzhou, the villages are well worth a weekend trip.
