I cannot support a place that exhibits it's ethnic minorities almost as if they are zoo animals. This place provides an extremely artificial and stereotypical depiction of Yunnan's ethnic minorities.

I think its better than Stone Forest, here you got to see all kind of minority's of Yunnan. Very huge and its takes hours if you want to see all. Each village is very close to each other. They have performance at certain hours, just make sure you got the leaflet provided at entrance. Worth a visit!

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

I love the shelters which has grown trees surrounding and as roof top protection. feeling 15 degrees once walked in. In certain areas, where groups of old local folks occuyping... 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

It's a must see destination at Kunming. To understand the life of local people it's a ideal place. Location is also beautiful, perfect day tour.

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
