We (father and his daughter) have had a wonderful 5-night stay at an airbnb in Dailingxiang Donggongcun, China. Dailingxiang is a farming community of one-hundred homes a couple kilometers outside the village of Mazhan which itself is 40 kilometers from the city of Cangnan. We came to China from Baltimore, MD, USA on a 3-week vacation honoring the daughter's 21st birthday and her final winter break from college. We spent a week in Shanghai, a week here at the airbnb, and will spend the final week in Xiamen. We recommend this airbnb most highly. The hosts are generous, the accommodation comfortable, and the location ideal. The hosts are a couple who farm here and whose son-in-law in Hangzhou speaks fluent English and readily communicates by email, phone, or other modalities. The home has good wifi, comfortable beds, and a beautiful bathroom. The view from the main bedroom is breath-taking. The house is meticulously clean. The hosts provided home-cooked meals each day which were superb. Fresh ingredients from their farm and the sea were cooked before our eyes. We ate with the cooks. Such an opportunity could never be had at a hotel and added to the wonder of our stay here. We call this “the heavenly farm in the mountain by the sea”. After a week in Shanghai this heavenly farm is a welcome visit to nature and Chinese rural life. Additionally, the area is inhabited by a minority called the Hakka, and one can witness here some of the special traditions of the Hakka people, such as burying their loved ones in flower-shaped mausoleums built into the cliffs. The area is mountainous, and the mountains go directly to the ocean. In our days in Dailignxiang we largely hiked the gorgeous mountain trails that overlooked either valleys of rich, terraced farm land or the ocean. The town of Mazhan is easily reached on foot and presents a rich array of eateries and shops. Prices are very reasonable and about half what prices are in Shanghai. Westerners are uncommon in this area, and English is not much spoken, but the people are so friendly that one can easily communicate by gesture. We heartily recommend this airbnb and the area.
