There are a variety of programs to satisfy different demands.

Athletic types can enjoy programs featuring archery and badminton.

Meanwhile, calisthenics, short jogs, group dancing and tai chi sessions are also available.

Cyclists can rent bikes to ride around the village's perimeter, while cultural types can play xiangqi (Chinese chess), take handicraft lessons and learn how to perform with waist drums, which local people traditionally do to celebrate bumper harvests.

There are old-film screenings, reading activities and bonfire parties on offer.

For nature lovers, there's lobster-fishing, harvesting crops and learning to cook dishes like local farmers.

For now, Wucun has 180 rooms and can house roughly 300 people.

Packages cost from 780 yuan ($130) per night per head on week days, and cover meals, accommodation, local transportation and interactive activities.

The price goes up to 980 yuan on weekends.

Accommodation bookings are above 80 percent during the summer vacation and go up to 100 percent during the National Day and the Spring Festival holidays.

The village has seen many guests return.

"We've also seen many who extend their stays," says Zhong.

"A few parents who came during the National Day holiday week (in October) befriended us on WeChat (Chinese app) and asked us if paddy harvest and water-chestnut digging is available so they can visit again".
