The village looks just like a maze. Riding a bicycle on the long slabstone and passing through the ancient alley one after another will make you feel as if you are following the footsteps of the local ancestors. Wherever you go, at an outlet or in deep alley, the exquisite wood carvings, brick carvings and stone carvings would inadvertently jump into your eye in turn, you can not help but always stop to take some pictures of them. 

Guanlu is a village with ancient buildings interconnected one another. You may see that eight big families live in the buildings of the same architectural style. The families are interconnected with each other, but relatively independent and self-contained. Ancient people of Huizhou attached great importance to education, so, in Guanlu Village, there used to be many private schools, as makes it reputed as the Museum of Ancient Chinese Private School! The idyllic villages and landscapes along this road are quite unique. It is really a great enjoyment to have a cycling tour through the ancient Huizhou villages.
