We had three great days of sightseeing in Wuyuan county (婺源县), Jiangxi province (江西省) before heading home. The local dialect is a Hui dialect (徽语) and Huizhou (徽州) culture and building practices predominate (like in southern Anhui province immediately to the north of Wuyuan). Due to the area's remoteness, many old and traditional buildings still survive. The county is capitalizing on this now to develop a tourist industry.
