Hongcun, a village in Yixian county, East China's Anhui province, was rated as one of the country's top destinations at a national tourist meeting in Shanghai on Tuesday.

Sponsored by an online travel agency, the meeting announced China's 11 best scenic spots, including Hongcun village, the Shanghai Oriental Pearl Tower and Zhejiang province's Qiandao Lake.

The village is known home and abroad for its well-preserved architecture dating back to the Ming and Qing dynasties (1368-1911). It is also the birthplace of Huizhou Culture and a place where ancient Huizhou businessmen gathered.

In 2000, Hongcun was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage list.
