This morning, drive about 2 hours to the fortress-like town of Huangyao with a history of more than 1,000 years.

Visit a Hakka-style farmhouse in the afternoon, around 20 minutes outside of the town. Do some seasonal farm works as the villagers usually do or build an earth stove in the field to roast chicken as they used to do when young.

Day 4: Huangyao - Zhaoping - Yangshuo
After a traditional Chinese breakfast at the family inn, drive 1.5 hours to Zhaoping. Not far from the county seat, verdant tea trees overspread the rolling mountains like an endless carpet. It is a perfect place to enjoy a moment of tranquility and join in the tea leave processing. At the foot of the tea mountain, you may see some simple dormitories that have witnessed the fading life of the educated urban youth who were sent to the countryside between the 1960s and 1970s. Lunch at a boat restaurant, followed by a 3-hour drive back to Yangshuo.
