The Essential
Langdong, on the border of the Dong, Miao and Shui districts, is very busy on Sunday, which is market day. This small town has retained many of its old wooden houses, some of which are 400-500 years old, which give the two main streets a charming atmosphere. At the end of one of these, an imposing stele recalls the passage of the Red Army in December 1934. Several military tombs can also be seen in the centre of the huge high school.
