There exist a little piece of heaven on the Beigan Island between two huge giants the Qin and Bi mountains of Matsu archipelago known as Qinbi Village 芹壁聚落.
Fancy a little Mediterranean piece of santorini lookalike attraction within Asia, this is the right place to visit. Granite and marble of different colors are the main materials used in constructing the homes in Qinbi village while the interior beams are made of wood. These homes are built gradually and orderly up the steep mountain.
As Qinbi village directly faces the sea, there are certain fujian style structural considerations like the fish shaped object on roofs for water drainage, stone lions at door front for protection from the supernatural, higher windows and placing large rocks on rooftops to deter bandits and collapsing roofs due to strong winds. With picturesque scenery and crystal clear waters, imagine how amazing it would look come sunrise or sunset.
Do not miss a trip to Qinbi village.
