We visited and stayed for two nights, to allow a full day exploring. We had to carry the bags up hill for more than 30 minutes to find the hotel. No taxis or any transport and very few directions. The map you buy for RMB 5 is useless .Everywhere was a muddy mess because of construction of more 'old' buildings.... More

This was during Chinese New Year, so it was very crowded but well worth the visit. An interesting place. Commercialized but still interesting. Interesting, shopping, food and shows. A look at a minority culture in China. Visited with one of my Chinese friends who enjoyed his time too. In Guizhou.

A good place to visit even during the national holiday, but reaching this place needs a local bus When you come make sure to have time to see the show - the performance where... More

My partner and I arrived on New Year’s Eve around 8:00pm to the village, which was enough time to have dinner and make it to the free show in the town center. We stayed four nights: 1 night in town and 3 nights at Yun Duan Lan Ting Resort Hotel. We came here to find handmade Miao embroidery examples and... More

After hours and hours of traveling, from Beijing, we reached the village where most of old houses were replaced by new constructions. The streets were not different from any other touristic places in China: shop, shop, shop, restaurant, restaurant, clothes for rent, hotels.
