Chejiang Dong Villages

Chejiang Dong Villages, located at 5 km east of Rongjiang County, consist of 3 villages called Zhanglu, Zhaitou and Motang, with a population over 3000. The Zhanglu village is the most well-known for its fame - the cradle of standard Dong dialect.

The entrances of the villages are featured by a cobble-paved street surrounded by a group of big aged Chinese Banyan trees. The street, stretching about 0.5 km, is a small local marketplace. At the end of the street, a sculpture stands there, in memory of the love story of Zhulang and Qin Niangmei - a Chinese version of Romeo and Juliet. There once came a movie call Qin Niangmei from that story in 1950s in China.
