OuCuo & Piano Piano : Kinmen Island

Oucuo is a traditional settlement of the Ouyang family, who came from Quanzhou during the Ming Dynasty over 400 years ago. The village was originally intended to defend the island from the sea invaders to the southern China coast. I arrived in Ou Cuo at sunset after a long day of riding a motorcycle around Kinmen Island. By then, I’ve already visited quite a few local villages with the gorgeous Fujianese Chinese house architecture, but Ou Cuo has a few guest houses that offer you to actually stay in one.

If you can, try and plan to stay here overnight.
