Holidays in China do not end at all with exploring the Great Wall of China, exploring the streets of the Forbidden City, which is located in Beijing, or looking for entertainment in the bustling Hong Kong. In the Middle Kingdom, there are a large number of other interesting places, which, by the way, have advantages over the more visited tourist cities and settlements.
Just a couple of hours' drive from Beijing, the village of Cuandixia awaits you with magnificent restored estates belonging to the Ming and Qing dynasties. However, not only the mansions are interesting in this settlement - it itself can be called an amazing attraction, since the village is surrounded by mountains on all sides and the village life, traditional for China, has been preserved here. If you are not attracted by the skyscrapers with crowds of people, then this village is a great place for a vacation. How can I find this village, the name of which is pronounced by the Chinese very indistinctly, so that I cannot even reproduce it in Russian? The road is a whole quest, but I think everyone can do it:
By the way, when you arrive at the settlement, be sure to dine at one of the local restaurants, where all dishes are prepared from products grown on a local farm. Not that the cuisine here is special or unusual, but it is 100% traditional Chinese and will appeal to most gourmets.
The city of Zhouzhuang is beautiful and beautiful, located very close to the industrial center of the Middle Kingdom - Shanghai. This place was founded almost 1,000 years ago, and most of the buildings were built in the 14-16 centuries. The streets of the city are lined with stone, and here you will find many shops with souvenirs. By the way, when buying any product in these shops, it is best to bargain until the very last.
Zhouzhuang is somewhat similar to Venice, as it is divided into small parts by water canals over which nice bridges are thrown. You can take a trip on a gondola, and if you pay a little extra tip, you can even enjoy the sound of folk songs performed live. Also visit the Fisheries Museum and taste the incredibly delicious handcrafted candies here. This place is ideal for a romantic getaway with your significant other.

For treatment, I advise you to go to the town of Urumqi, where you will find:
The city of Urumqi is a real medical center in China, where in the bosom of nature you can recuperate and get rid of even chronic diseases. It is not a fact, of course, that doctors are omnipotent here, but the place is beautiful and very popular with tourists.
