  • "Xijiang Qianhu this village located in the Leigong mountains would be one of the biggest village"Miao"with its 1000 houses. It is economical to reach this village by regular buses from Kaili or Guyang. Another trick is to participate in a trip and leave the bus arriving at the village at a landfill. (Interesting if you have big luggage) It is possible to visit Kaili and Xijiang in the same day to run but it is much more interesting to stay 2-3 days in the village. At the entrance, it is possible to leave its important luggage and keep only the minimum necessary as the streets of the village are very steep. We find many craft shops, hotels and guesthouses in this village. Do not hesitate to get away from the main streets to discover the former village and West side rice fields. To leave the village and join Kaili, Zhenyuan, or Guiyang, black taxis are scrambling to take you.

  • Some of the buildings are still very Miao-style, but have been excessively developed too commercialized, I was 11 times to go, a lot of people! A lot of people! Give me the first feeling is crowded! The second feeling is that almost never met a woman is wearing a rented Miao clothes in the photo! At first I thought about changing a set of attempts, but seeing so many people wearing almost everything! Then there is a snack, this is still a little Miao characteristics in the inside, there will be night market, eat or can!
