The Chinese guide just talked and talked all the time. We didn't understand a word and we really felt terrorized by all the noise he and others made and all the pressure they put on us to buy all sorts of pseudo-medical nonsense. It has nothing to do with what undoubtedly was once a beautiful and interesting culture. The performance... More

Ok so,it is commercial but do,you really expect to find a original village in this tourist zone. We have visited several ancient villages in china some genuine but most to be honest have been built or rebuilt for us tourists. Binlang is on the site of a old Li village but its a mixture of some original huts and new/old... More

nice little attraction. one can hire guiedes to take you through, however, i don't believe they have english speaking guides. the park has a zip line, which was pretty cool. it is only frightening leading up to it. once strapped in, there is nothing to worry about, so enjoy the ride down. ever pet a gigantic snake? no? try it...

I spent about 2 hours there... There is a performance at the end of the park. Worth going if you have nothing much to do.

I have to agree with the other reviewers I didn't see the history and cultural side of the village - other than the 2 rooms when you first come in - it was built for tourists. spend the day at the nature reserves!

Part of me wants to rate this really low for the whole "Disney-esque" feel of the place, down to the rather pricey 160 rmb just to get in. And like Disney, for every attraction there was a souvenir stand right next door looking to sell you something. You definitely don't get the sense that you're in an actual village, but... More

We had a wonderful time here. We were able to enjoy the history, meet with the people and share in their culture. we petted Monkey's, held snakes, crossed swinging bridges and enjoyed the show that shared about the tribal beliefs! Our guide Angela was amazing! do not miss this one!
