I have been to Yangdong Folk Village with my familly. We have seen beautiful trees, flowers, valleys and traditional houses. We have visited a school that was a tranditional house, and we have taken pictures with school and nature. We have also eaten a lunch at a beautiful valley. It has become a good experience to travel Yangdong Folk Village. I have felt that the Yangdong Folk Village was a most beautiful place of the world.
