Little Likeng Village

Likeng village, located in the Wuyuan county, in Jiangxi province, was once known as Liyuan during a time when China was much younger.

The historical village is located 45 kilometres northeast of Wuyuan county and was established during the late Song Dynasty at a time when reading was the prevailing activity among the villagers.

This is a reason why you want to go to this Village, to see old river village.

This Likeng village should look at like this, but when I come to visit after the flood, that has changed everything.

I called Brook Hotel in Likeng village and asked how I can get there. They say that they do not have yet electricity or Internet, but if I want to come they can send a driver from a village and that way police do not prevent access to the village.

This it has been seen in the village a day before.

This is the same sight when I came to this hotel, they have been cleaned quickly.

Many wooden bridges have fallen
This part of the town they have cleaned very fast

Here is a tourist attraction.
Former residence of Li Riucai, he was lumber merchant. His house was very beautiful with various decorations as stone carvings in the front door and wooden carvings in house windows and doors.

And this part of town is not yet ready for tourist.

Everything the river watered was drying outdoors
What you do when the river wet your dry food, you dried again in outdoor
Maybe beautiful park once, now it is full of rubbish and mud
All riverboats are on dry land and many are broken

Still, you can find nice places to take pictures.

When you see what they do in the river, you want to leave this village quickly.
They use that river water clean everything that flood water make it dirty. They wash dishes, sheets, clothing and pans in the river. Also, they get fish from the same river for dinner (Luckily Brook hotel do not do this.).

The same river they throw all the garbage and food waste!

In distance, this village look nice

I only stayed here one day and night, then I have to go, because nothing else to do here, all tourist attraction in the countryside is closed.
