Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Nice little window into the minority Tujia culture.

Located in the heart of town well worth a visit for an hour or so.

This is one of the few real cultural relics of Zhangjiajie city and worth a visit. It's the palace area of the local Tujia lord of the area (time period???); some parts are falling apart but there are signs that money and care are being put in to make it tourist friendly. We participated in a dance in the square in the evening, and you can walk around it (climb), admire the views (it's higher than other places so the king could see his lands) and the artifacts make it worthwhile. Also, according to our guide, Tujia women sing crying songs for a month before their wedding and there was a short demonstration of the crying song, in costume. Hopefully, they will continue to improve the site without erasing its history. No English guides.

It’s amusing and interesting to hear some of their roots and customs of this minority tribe. The guides are great but it was held in Chinese and I didn’t see any signage on the display in English.

This place is a historical and cultural theme park. Everything you need to know about Tujia, the minority people who lives in Wuling mountains, can be found here. There are many of these people in Zhangjiajie. They speak like with voices and tones that sounds like singing.

Outside at the gates, there are several twin beasts guarding each gate. There were at least 3 different pairs when I was there, pretty sure there are more on the other sides too. Upon entering, you will come across a large square compound with the Tujia King's hall and a tall pillar and a gate. For namesake direct translated from Chinese Tujiawang, I shall call him King even though he looked more like a chief to me.

There will be performance in here on certain time or day. Probably some rituals, role-plays, or dances, but we were also told that the tribe's shaman/ wizard will be performing there as well.

The next big building is the museum which collects relics of ancient times including the king's belongings and old silverware and jewelry, several statues and mannequins with custom costumes. The place is rather narrow, with multiple floors and if there is a large group of tourists, it can get a little stuffy. You can learn quite a lot here, for example, the Chinese Munaks(zombie and vampire) you saw in Hongkong movies in the 80s and 90s, seems to be originated from Tujia.

The next building shows how marriage is done back then. According to my guide, the Tujia-King has the right to sleep with the bride on her wedding night before returning her to her newly-wed husband. So, they tend to marry secretly instead of asking for the his blessing.

You will eventually come to a large pond with a few buildings. They aren't open when I was there. The drinks were expensive so I didn't bother to buy. There was a shop with multiple snack stores for you to sample before you purchase. Some of the rice/ sesame fried candies were really tasty.

This place closes later than most places and is easy trek compared to mountain hikes. It is best to put this attraction after a tiring day so that you can relax. Our guide and driver was Mr. Chris Tan from Zhangjiajie Kangkai.

Interesting place to know about the history and culture of the Chinese minority ethnic groups. The building itself is worth visiting. Do not miss the lotus pond at the back of the garden.

At the end of February while we were in Zhangjiajie we went to visit this park. There was a beautiful tour guide in costume to greet us and show us Tusi Castle, its history, exhibits and their customs. This was an interesting place to visit. For an AAAA National Tourist Attraction their washroom sure brings shame to the country. The toilets are unisex; Chinese style no seat just a hole in the ground and without light. It was dark; you can easily step in the hole and get injured. The toilet facility sure spoiled the rating of this place.
Happy Travelling!

We arrived at this location after taking the cable car up to Tianzi Shan. We could not see the Hallelujah mountain because of the misty weather so we decided to visit the park. There's a guide who will explain all the exhibits in Chinese. Quite informative. After the exhibits, there's a show of knife throwing by an elderly man. After that, another elderly man came on stage and apparently he does calligraphy and the emcee will drum up audience interest to sell the pieces. Our guide bought the tickets for us at RMb110 per person. Can give this a miss if you are on a budget.
