  • China, a major in Liping dong minority in southeastern Guizhou village here. I really like it. Blue jeans indigo fabric construction and they got along with agriculture. The village around the rice terraces worthwhile. Jump tower towers don't miss this area, describing the night shows.

  • We were a few weeks by Zhaoxing, more specifically Zhaoxing Old Town, with the idea of escape from Guilin, vulgar, and mass tourism of dirt of the City despite having so many people dedicated to cleaning, and general lack of charm of this city. To get to Zhaoxing Old Town, as already said some other traveler, should take the train in the station Guilin West (Guilinbei) and after an hour or something, get off at Congjian. There, as soon as you leave the train station there are people (people of the mini bus terminal which is next to the train station) that you wonder where you're going and just by showing them the name of the hotel will tell you to which mini bus will have to climb. The ticket sale at the rate of 10 RMB and halfway the same staff of the mini bus makes you get to buy the entrance tickets to the blessed scenic places. After a twenty minute journey come to Zhaoxing, (where he cannot enter the mini bus) and there like magic it will be waiting for you an employee of the hotel (at least of the hotel where I stayed) that had previously been anoticiado by the people of the mini bus , this is to load with your luggage and take you to the hotel. The first encounter with the town, was really a surprise, and although it shows that it was Zeitgeist, is perceived after having been there a few days, that keeps that freshness of social simplicity and authenticity, which is evident by the treatment that all their inhabitants have among themselves and also with those foreigners who have seen more than once. You will see some community kitchens where to make your meals and lunch or dinner all together. The town itself is beautiful and clean, despite the touches. And I really believe that those adjustments that have not altered the spirit of the people, because those you invite to stay, have well come you. Otherwise, in my simple opinion, is what happens in a nearby village, as ' An also of the Dong ethnic group, which remains as before, but... damaged, dirty, with brick buildings that alter the typical urban landscape, and that in particular, give us nothing of desires to stay a few days there instead, in Zhaoxing, breathes tranquillity, bonhomie, amiability. Nobody wants to take advantage of the tourist because they have their own lives, nobody looks at you and go and you an ATM that only serves to make as much money as possible. They have their lives and raisins unnoticed, and I say this while in the month of April there were almost tourists. Undoubtedly, the number of new constructions to the view, you can assume that mass tourism is just around the corner, mass tourism in a 95% Chinese, but for now it is a place to not ignore. We were lucky to hit with the accommodation, Tong Sang Art Hotel (because I write reviews of it) and really had a great. In short, I'll be back to visit that village, another week to give walks by their surroundings, and will try to do so as soon as possible, as that area in five years may be much-changed. This is my humble opinion.

  • Certainly, a place of tourism to the extreme (we were the only Westerners during the new year Chinese, February 2018) but what charm in this old village preserved cars (you must park outside and take a shuttle). Of beautiful homes, bordering the river and its bridges of wood, but you know away to go hang out in the less crowded alleys, experience local life of the Dong, women who blaring this tissue soaked Indigo which becomes super smooth and waterproof and is used to make the outfits typical of this place. Otherwise the streets of shops and restaurant, stalls of grill where you can enjoy pretty much everything (vegetables, meat, fish, octopuses, but also typical sweets and so on!). We were accommodated in a hotel in the old town (hotel Indigo), undeniably full of charm, to be able to enjoy the city in the early morning and late evening and soak up the local life. Not to mention the ballad on the heights to see the rice terraces of Tang' year! Come into the Ghizhou and does not make a stop there would be a mistake!
