Cham Fau

Cham Fau, Hai Yuan , Shou Lung .

Cham Fau is a typical river valley town of about 10,000 people, located along the Hungste basin along the rice plain. The terrain itself is a river valley toward the north, passing between high cliffs, eventually widening into broad floodplains with islands and bluffs to either side.

Cham Fau is made of two towns. One is Fu Te, a ring of high hills above the flood plain, where the wealthy and powerful dwell in their stately mansions and temples. Here, the streets are paved with stone and well-patrolled by the local magistrate’s guards. Great arched gates face the street, usually covered with bronze representations of “lucky” signs, dragons and monsters, designed to scare away misfortune and evil spirits. On the highest hill is the Monastery of the Path, with it’s imposing red lintel gates and golden shrines. Below is the local magistrate’s house, with high white walls and rich wood trimmings.

Below, on the floodplain, amidst a chaos of bridges, canals, roadways and moored river sampans, dwell the common people; merchants, mendicants, peasants and thieves. The roads here are of hard packed earth and infrequently patrolled. During the spring
floods and monsoons, they turn into morasses of mud. Between Huang Bay and the mainland, a great canal runs north to south, jammed with houseboats, sampans, rowboats and barges. Above this choked waterway, arch high wooden bridges painted bright red (the most lucky color) and covered in gold filigree and carved symbols.
