Know More about this tour

Huxian County is located 25 miles (40 kilometers) southwest from downtown Xi'an. Your tour guide and driver will pick you up at 9am from your downtown Xi'an hotel and drive for approximately 1 hour to reach East Han (Dong Han Village). Upon arrival, browse the Farmer Painting Studio and Paper Cutting Arts Studio where the local peasants will show you their work of art and begin to paint in your presence. You will notice realistic depictions of life, bold and rich colors, and the similarities in spirit from Huxian Peasant Paintings.

These peasant paintings contain rich regional characteristics and reflect the spirit of time and, of course, enjoy popularity all of their own. The style of these artworks is clear and simply sketched with the use of strong contrast in colors. You could perceive that life is primitive yet full of joy from these attractive paintings. Depending on your level of interest in these local arts, you may try to paint and/or try Chinese paper cutting.

Next, visit a local peasant' family's home where you could enjoy local dishes for lunch at your own expense. Local peasants are famous for their warm hospitality to guests from all over the world. Take some time to explore the village and meet with the locals to immerse yourself in rural life of China. Upon completion of your visit at a peasant home, you will be transferred back to your hotel in Xi'an where this private day tour is concluded.
