A great opportunity to see the multi regional houses and some local wares of Yunnan providence. Can be somewhat promotional as to items sold in the various traditional homes/ shops. Best to not visit on the weekends because of the crowds of locals.

This village is just 30 minutes by taxi (metered fare is about RMB 30) from the city center. This is a must visit to catch a glimpse and introduction to the varied nationalities in China. The village offers a great show and interesting time. It is better to get there early so you can plan your tour round the village... More

worth the drive out of Kunming - could have spent a lot longer here. Kids enjoyed the activities such as blow pipes and arrows. Great space - well laid out and tranquil space. Worth half aday

This village was a great opportunity to find out more about the Ethnic Minority groups we had seen and heard about during travels to China and Taiwan over the last few years. Ask your hotel to arrange a taxi to take you there - there were plenty of cabs to catch at the end of the day back to your... More

The local ethnic shows were most entertaining. A lot of walking is required in order to see all the different villages. The variety and colourful costumes were amazing.

The ancient villages in Kunming display the ways and habits of more than 30 minorities in China. This place looks like an adventure park, because the walkingroutes are very clever set up. Everywhere in the park is background music and there are enough small shops to buy food or drinks. There is an elephant show as well, were people can... More
