I cannot remember the name of the village, as we went to several of them. We visited a mother and daughter, wearing traditional Miao dress, who showed us their home and provided us with lunch cooked by themselves. The lunch was very tasty, with soup, vegetables, different kinds of meat and rice. They showed us their very old loom, still... More

My wife and I had thoroughly enjoyed our visit to just one of many Miao Villages in the KaiLi China area. The specific village that we had visited is the Qingman Miao Village near the city of Guiyang. Some of the Miao village people gave us the traditional Miao welcome - rice wine before entering the village, Great! We had... More

This listing is incorrect. There is a number of different Miao minority villages, of which I visited 2. The Quingman Miao village, moderately interesting is at the location indicated on the map. There is a welcome ceremony with local wine drinking out of a horn and a family showing local weaving. The Shiqiao Miao village, very interesting, in a completely... More

THE MINORITY VILLAGES HAVE ALL BUT DISAPPEARED!! Don't be overly disappointed, but these villages are now relatively modern with just remnants of what was. We enjoyed visiting several, but really we were too late to get the "true" experience...

If you want to see how real Miao culture is, go to Langde Village. You can take a bus from train station to the city's bus station center. Then take a bus which Langde is the last stop (10 rmb). There you can find lots of homestays. I recommend A-Mei's. It's in the right side of the bus stop and... More

ShangLangDe was one of earliest Miao village opened to tourism since 1985. The pressure to turn it into a theme park was great but it was lucky to get the rare protection status from decaring the whole village as provincial level cultural relics. Tourism development and facilities were kept to the minimum - absolutely no serious pollution from the tourism... More

Langde is one of the most authentic, less visited and less commercial of all the miao villages I've visited. I stayed with a family just above the bus station stop for only 40 yuan a night. During the day our local home owner, his wife , his father and mother all put their best miao clothing and along with most... More
