A dozen villagers from Haikou village of Dexing city, Jiangxi province were seen setting up tables to play mahjong in a hollow at the base of a 1800-year-old camphor tree, reported NetEase. This is definitely much more impressive than the mahjong players who did their thing in a Foshan swimming pool.
The giant ancient tree bears a crown of 35 meters and measures up to 20 meters tall. Its circumference is 23 meters, which means that it would take 16 adults holding hands to be able to encircle it.
The hollow can hold dozens of people, and can remain dry whether rain or shine. According to local villagers, it is warm inside during the winter, while in it remains cool during the summer.
During their farming break, the villagers would come to the tree hollow and play mahjong or cards. Sounds pretty ideal.
