Bless everyone when flying a lantern.

Memory, culture and mountain itself are the elements of this place and the future of this area.

 

 

Lunch in Jiu Feng old street-Scenery/Architecture/XiaoQi/Souvenir/Culture

>The workers from gold mine had to live inside the old street, and this street is another mine tunnel too. In the past, there were nine families living here. They always had to buy food or clothes by taking a boat sliding down to town. To them it's very inconvenient, thus they decided to send one person per time for purchasing everything for nine families. Due to this reason, that's why we call it Jiu Feng.
