E23***34lovely village surrounded by amazing scenery. nice restaurants and shops to eat and and browse. Only complaint would be the sightseeing buses that hurtle around the village at top speed and expect pedestrians to jump out of the way! Better to enjoy the village on foot.
MaxSTruly amazing place. The Buddhist paradise. It is believe that Shambala will start to come from here. Anyway, this is the place of incredible cultural and religious heritage located in the national park, pure wet wild Asian forest. You will feel it. There are many creatures and plants protected by the law and this place is also a preservation area. Need a half of the day to cover tourist zone. It requires a lot of climbing up and down.
KemoabetsweThe hotel in Qingyan Ancient Town is comfortable .I would recommend it .The beds are comfortable and the air conditioners work well .The shower and the towels are clean .You can take brief walks to the ancient town and the are places to explore outside .
Kaili is home to one of the biggest ethnic Miao villages in China and, thankfully, it’s very accessible to visit.
A bus ride from the city centre, the ethnic village is located between the hills so there’s plenty of opportunities to get an aerial perspective.
Historic on the outside but still nice on the inside, many of the buildings have been converted for the tourist flock - whether it be bougie hotels, nice cafes or decent places to stop and get some snacks the visit should be fairly easy.
As with all of Guizhou, getting off the beaten track and exploring how deep into the alleyways you can get is always the best way forward.
Located south-east of Guiyang, Guizhou province - Zhaoxing is a small village nestled in the hills surrounded by rice terraces.
Characteristic of the Miao ethnic minority, small wooden buildings and narrow alleyways dominate this small village, with the occasional spire marking areas where locals get together to play games like mahjong or cards in the evening.
While the town has been refurbished for tourism, the town is a great place to walk around and explore while the surrounding hills offer an aerial vantage point from which to enjoy the unique architecture.
Head to viewpoint in front of the city gate for the best view of the area.
Enjoy a fun filled day in Nanjiang Canyon .A short trip outside of Guiyang ,you will find this gem .A ticket for the river rafting was ¥188 and we spent two hours in the water .In the beginning ,the water was calm and cool.We were paddling to gain some momentum .There was also a little waterfall were people got off to swim .There after our sticks were taken as the route didn’t need paddling sticks ,the route was faster and a little scary .Those who love adrenaline rushes will love the second part of the rafting .My two friends lost their possessions,one lost a nose ring,the other lost her spectacles,be sure to have your possessions safely stored in the lockers ,that is ¥10 .Be sure to have a waterproof pouch if you want to take pictures .

Sometimes you see some architecture that you either hate or love, not a lot in between. I love this apartment buildings in Guiyang, some people call them skewer-buildings or 串串-houses in Chinese.
The official name of the compound is "龙禧苑", you can either shoot them from the street or from opposite buildings. I tried to keep certain privacy standards and didn't shoot any people. I guess that will be appreciated. It's about the architecture, not about the people living inside.
📍Where is it?
It's in Guizhou provinces capital Guiyang, in the west part of the new city, south of GuanShanHu park.

Take the train from Guiyang north railway station
then sharing car to arrivare to the village.
Get off to the West Gate and purchase the ticket first to e enter the area, suggested avoid the crowds timing
after this step the shuttle bus will bring u to the final destination close to the village.
After that have a good and loooong walk!
