A good place to stay may make all the difference when going on vacation.
While some may opt for old, picturesque castles with faulty pipelines and others for more modernized hotels, a Chinese entrepreneur has managed to combine the best of both worlds to create a hybrid of travel destination.
The 500-year-old homes were originally built in Jiangxi during the Ming and Qing dynasties.
However, in 2002, a Chinese entrepreneur disassembled around 50 of those homes and moved them to Shanghai to protect them from a reservoir construction that could potentially harm the buildings.
Taking them 700 kilometers away, 13 of those houses are now part of the Amanyangyun, a newly opened luxury resort in Shanghai.
Here, the historic homes are reborn for others to travel back in time and relax in its calming atmosphere.
In addition, visitors will also be able to view a 1000-year-old “king tree.”
The camphor and the forest surrounding the area also came to Shanghai to “hug the old houses like it always has.”
