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.

This is a well laid out park with villages staffed by different ethnic groups of Yunnan showing their differences in culture and including music and dance. It covers a large area which is made more interesting by lakes and bridges; several hours should be allowed for your visit. Buggies are available to help getting around. The staff are helpful and...

The YNV is a great way to kill a day with guest who are visiting from outside China. Since Yunnan is home to so many minorities, it's a good exposure to the general culture of the area. We started in the morning, toured the entire place, had our meals there, which were reasonably priced, and finished the day with the... More

The village allows you to see different lifestyles in a short time. We went twice as there was too much to see in one day. On Saturday we discovered that we were given free entry!! Had a lot of fun at the same time learnt a lot. Loved the elephant show where you can buy iced bamboo and feed the... More

This park gives a good glimpse of the different minorities that are from China. It is set up like Epcot with different sections for each minority. Each section will have the architecture and food in the style of that minority. There is a large show incorporating each group that happen twice a day (morning and night). After a couple hours,...

Half of all the minority groups in China are near Kunming. They have sections of the nationalities village where you can see how they live in their traditional homes. They wear traditional clothes, have dances, food is available. It is a very interesting place and well worth the expense. The grounds are beautiful in themselves with pagodas and other Chinese...
