The Yunnan Nationalities Village is like a big nice park with different small villages around. Be prepared to do some walking as the area is very large, but you can also rent some bikes if you get tired. We visited on a very hot day and they were celebrating some kind of water festival. There was a huge water fight... More

The Yunnan Nationalities Village is situated near the shores of the Dianchi Lake. Full of resorts of all kinds, golf clubs dotes the vicinity of the Village. It is a paid entry and they also have, for a few Yuan, insurance, while you are in the Village. It is a collection of about 26 minority tribes that lives in Yunnan.... More

Although it has a bit of an atmosphere of a theme park about it - the village is very well laid out with excellent building reconstructions and re-enactments. The park was not at all crowded when I visited and it was very pleasant strolling from village to village. It is a good way to learn about Yunnan's minority populations.

There are an examples of how Chinese minority's used to live. Even there are authentic minority people on the villages. I tried to find a museum but never find it. The place is huge and incredible beautiful. The information about each minority is scarce, but at least there are some info in English.

This is a must visit place if you want to see more about Yunnan Colourful Culture. You need at least minimum one full day visit to see the most of it. You will be fascinated by their cultures and their folklore stories and beliefs. Do get your local tour guide tell you all about them. If by any chance you... More

The Yunnan Nationalities Village provided insight to the little know multitude of cultures and languages that make up what appears to most westerners as a monolithic Chinese culture. The people are very diverse in appearance and their ancient culture, storires and food very engaging.

The different areas were interesting but the place was a little cheesy. I actually enjoyed it however. The only part I didn't particularly like was the persistence of the shop keepers.

The Yunnan Nationalities Village is kinda a theme park to showcase all the minorities in the region. Great education if you are interested in the tribes of the region.

This is like a version of the theme villages in Disneyland on steroids! Each of the main minorities in Yunnan are represented in their own 'natural' habitat with performances and activities in each. If you have time and can stand a little camp, this is very fun. It is a very quick and succinct way to 'visit' the different parts... More
