Matang is quaint, quiet and particular as it is one of few Gejia villages easily reached from Kaili. If you want to delve into the differences of the Gejia and other Miao people, then you need a competent guide to lead you. Otherwise visiting Matang...More

Matang is one of the easiest villages to access from Kaili, though it's fairly thin on the excitement side and looks a lot like other villages. Matang's main attraction is the fact that it's populated by a small tribe of Gejia. Local women wear white...More
