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

Finding a way of getting there proved a challenge as no-one seemed to be able to tell us where to catch the A1 bus. (I suspect you just wait at on of the bus stops) We paid a taxi which was 50 RMB. So I am sure I was probably ripped off. We got the A1 bus back into the... More

If you know nothing or do not have plenty of time to explore all Yunnan ethnic minorities. This park is definitely a good place to be, and u will get a bit flavour of most minority culture. Even though, some people think it probbaly is not original, but most employees who are representing each village are actual minority themself. I... More

The villages are well laid out, with plenty of signs so you don't miss anything. There is a lot of walking, however there is a train service at a small cost that will take you around the park. There are too many highlights to list. You can arrange your own transport from the city, where a taxi will cost you... More

Every foreigner living or visiting Kunming should go! It's very accessible for all levels for Chinese language. We had just moved there 2 months prior and found our way around. A little touristy but not over whelmingly. Its laid out very well to enjoy a beautiful walk around the park or you could rent buggies and bikes but I recommend... More

Very quick and easy way to learn a little bit about the minorities of China/Yunnan. Very beautiful park laid out well and mostly handicap accessible. Worth a visit.
