Hongun is a traditional village in south Anhui Province, famous for its two pools, the Moon Pond in the centre of the village and the larger to the south. The reflections evoke coexistence and the harmony of man and nature, and are an inspiration for hundreds of art students who descend daily in the village to sketch and paint. Hongcun village was built by successful officials or merchants returning home, and was a model of conventional Chinese village construction from the 14th and to the 20th centuries. Hongcun is one of two Ancient Villages in Southern Anhui forming a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
