I quite like this Miao village of 1000 households. The unique traditional housing architectures and the footpath made of stones. The amount of tourist that this village is getting speaks a volume. A must visit place while in China.

Spent two nights here on a short trip from Yangshou. The wooden buildings spread up the hillsides make a good sight. Whilst it is touristy, the best bit was walking off the tourist trail and up through the market stalls used by the locals. The...More

Good to see but don't expect to visit an authentic Miao Village. Most hotel are run by Non Miao. You can see Miao selling a few stuff but they are not all local. Most real local got money and rent their house to the Han...More

This place is a tourist nightmare and completely overtaken by commercial interest. Massive construction is taking place to bring it further from the real thing. Buses ferry the hordes from one location to another like other chinese attractions with hefty entrance fees. Most tourists will...More

My Miao friends from Kaili brought me here. Yes, it is commercial like Lijiang or Dali, but you can have a good time here. Especially the local food is enjoyable. A place where you can make friends with the Miao ethnic group.

While they've yet to add every single restaurant known to most touristy places, the Miao village is certainly modernizing and monetizing their village. It is, however, still picturesque, with plenty of good shots to get in, both during the day and at night. Try some...More

I'm sure the village brings in a lot of revenue for the Miao people but it is again a typical commercialization of a minority's lifestyle. Thousands of people flock here to pose in Miao costumes and buy useless stuff in one of the many shops....More

This is a charming village of the minority Miao people and one should visit before it becomes over-run with tourists. Quite remote but beautiful.
