This park was a little hard to find at first. If you make your way to the main lakeside park, and then walk to the centre of the park (where the red line stops and the blue starts (look at the road). There are a number of larger restaurants. Take this road directly away from the lake and the village... More

This place was a great preview into the lives of the Minority people in China. While obviously commercial, the people were very pleasant and outgoing. Everyone I met was friendly and helpful. Not a Chinese speaker was not a problem as most had a basic understanding of English. A must see for visitors and locals alike.

A really interesting places to explore the many different ethnics groups that reside in Yunnan. A ticket is 90rmb. It's half price for kids and free from pensioners (with ID). You'll need a whole day to explore this vast array of ethnic villages. There are eateries scattered around so eating and drinking isn't a problem. I hope you find somewhere... More

Visiting Yunnan Nationalities Village is a great opportunity to observe more about the Ethnic Minority groups in Yunnan. There are local touristy shops selling wide varieties of available local stuff with lots of eating places also. It’s a huge area, where one can spend time walking around just looking villages.

This is my 2nd time to Kunming, tho to the Village is my 1st. I went 2 Fridays ago, just to satisfy my curiosity of many minorities I only heard of. I went mid-morning. That was a problem, as there were few visitors. As a result, the various minority sections hardly made a stir. I saw a few exhibits of... More

Let's start with a bit not so nice thing there. There're to many souvenir shops with the same things to sell. The bright side is the place is well organized and maintained. We had a lot of fun the whole time. It's nice to see the differences on the Yunnan minority. The place is really big and it was not... More

It was OK to waste a few hours. Its very large so you can spend hours at the place but we saw most of it in 3. I felt like most was store to buy handy crafts.

You can easily reach the Yunnan Nationalities Village (Yunnan Min Zu Cun), take bus 24 or 44 from the Kunming train station. About 50 minutes drive. The park fees are about 90 RMB, 45 for over 60 and possibly free for 65 and over. On a beautiful sunny weekday in late October there was almost no one visiting the park... More

Once you have past all the souvenir shops near the main entrance you enter a well laid out cultural educational experience. The 26 minority village settings each have at least one plaque explaining the history of that group and multilingual guides are available at the main entrance for 200 yuan for 2 hours and 50 an hour after that. There... More
