The protection and development of Chinese ancient villages began 20 years ago during the 1980s. ”China Ancient Villages” form a special group with special meaning and relevance.

During the past 20 years, with varying degrees of national economic development, we protected and developed the ancient villages in different speeds, on different political and economic levels, different geographical conditions and with different ethnic and cultural background.
