Yongsi Stele of Ming Dynasty's Official Road

Green Island Villa is the ancient Raoping County (Sanrao) to Fengcheng Chaozhou "official road" through the land. The past dynasties'government officials went back and forth to Raoping to handle official business, and most of them passed through this ancient road to observe the people's conditions. Legend has it that Yang Ziliang, the master and servant of Chaozhou Opera, went along this road to Jieyang Xichuan to "beg for relatives". This "official road" through "Daozai" section needs to cross a stream called "Wuxi". Every spring, rain, summer and flood season, mountain torrents occur frequently, streams swell, past inconvenience, and livestock casualties often occur. During the Wanli period of the Ming Dynasty, the then Chaozhou Prefecture stopped waiting for Xu Xueyan and often passed through the "official road". One day, Hou Ye passed by this place, parked around, carefully inspected the situation, and sighed with emotion. So he discussed with the villagers to build roads to avoid the difficulties of his followers. Xu Hou Ye donated his salary for the new road construction. After a lot of efforts, the road has been completed, pedestrian access is convenient, and it benefits business and traveling students. In order to thank Xu Xueyan for his efforts to build roads for the benefit, the villagers carved stone inscriptions to achieve immortality. After the legend "Yongsi Stele" was completed, the audience heard the legend. Soon an olive tree grew beside the monument, with thick branches and leaves, towering high in the sky and fruitful branches. It was known as the "auspicious tree". It implies that predecessors planted trees and later generations planted shade. "Drinking water does not forget to dig wells." Of course, this is a myth and legend, but people will never forget Xu Hou Ye's virtue of advocating road construction and benefiting the people. "Yongsi Stele" has become a rare cultural landscape of Green Island Villa, attracting a large number of tourists to stop and watch every day to remember the past.

Green Island Glacier Geopark

Green Island Glacier Geopark is located in Qinglan Canyon near Green Island Tourism Villa, about 10 kilometers away from Green Island Villa. It is the first provincial geological park in eastern Guangdong. The natural geological landform covers many unrepeatable natural wonders such as volcanic profile, typical granite landform, fossil and glacial wonder. From late Jurassic to early Cretaceous about 150 million years ago, volcanoes frequently occurred in Qinglan area, and hot magma intruded into the early strata, forming a large-scale granite. Under the uplift of the Himalayan movement, the granite bodies buried beneath the surface protruded on the surface, forming the peculiar and magnificent granite landscapes of the Qinglan area, such as glacial moulds, stone peaks, pillars, caves and V-shaped canyons. Qinglan Canyon Glacier Group is a rare Cenozoic Quaternary low-altitude marine glacier relic in China two or three million years ago. During the melting of Quaternary glaciers, under the "closed" and "semi-closed" conditions covered by thick ice, glacial melt water flows downward along the glacial crevices. Under the pressure of the glacial layer, the glacial melt water acts as a "cylindrical water drill". Under the pressure of the glacial layer, the glacial melt water is formed by intense impact, swimming and grinding on the overburden bedrock and glacial debris downward, and has extremely high geology. Popular science and aesthetic appreciation value. Covering an area of about 20 square kilometers, the total number of mortars is more than 1600, which is one of the areas with the lowest altitude and latitude and the largest number of mortars in China.

Agricultural experience

The Villa highlights the characteristics of Chaoshan's agricultural culture. Under the green 100-year-old olive tree, it collects various agricultural customs, farming and farm tools with regional characteristics of the times, and reproduces the increasingly lost agricultural culture. Through ancient vegetable gardens, watermelon shed lotus ponds, waterwheel mills and old well workshops, the ancient and simple farms are more attractive. Visitors can not only visit, but also experience the rich local flavor and simple folk customs. In the past, the living conditions in the countryside made the elders look back on the past and feel the vicissitudes of life, while the younger learnt from popular science knowledge and benefited a lot.
