The entrance to one of many old houses in the small town Fuli, an appealing place just outside of Yangshuo. It's preferably to many locations in this region since the number of tourists is quite low.
Fuli Town originally lay to the east of Donglang Hill and was called "Huangdao Street"in the Tang (618-907 A.D.) and Song (960-1279 A.D.)Dynasties. Then it gradually approached the Li River and was renamed "Fuli Town"in the Republic of China (1912-1949 A.D.).
Here you can find not only beautiful scenery but also many happy tales.It is said that Fairy Song, Sister Liu, lived here for many years and she left many beautiful tales after her, In the 7960s, the famous film Sister Liu was based on these tales and mainly filmed here, In recent years,local people have made good use of their cultural heritage and developed the painting-fan industry.
Fuli Town has become the famous "hometown of painting-fan ." In Fuli Town the main scenic spots are the Scenery of Ancient Town, Three Supernatural Women Stones, Kylin-giving Sons, Immortal's Hands, Secret Donglang, Yinlong Fancy Cave,Tangmen Views, Liugong Three Deep Pools, and Ancient Battle Field in Baimian (Yangshuo History Tablet).

A truly eyecatching photo and a wonderful scenery. These colours are gorgeous and the play of light and shadow emphasizes this impression. A very fancy and interesting photo - and truly not a everyday one.
Greetings from cold and sunny Germany!

Very nice capture of the tasteful aged doors making good use of the light. The choice of the colors of red and green is really great.

the colors of the wooden doors and the posters works excellent with each others, maybe the picture is a bit heavy at the top and you could have used a lower POV.
