This seems to be a catch-all for all Miao villages around Kaili so I will discuss the 2 that we visited.
On the first day we took a bus to Xijiang. It is probably the most popular and biggest one. It was somewhat of a disappointment due to the over development and commercialization of the place. Very much like Lijiang in Yunnan. New paved streets and shops everywhere. To see anything interesting you need to try and find the narrow streets in the back. We also escaped the crowds by climbing the rice terraces. I'd give this one 3 dots.
On the next day we went to Langde. The bus dropped us right in the heart of the very small village. This was much better with a few local selling handicrafts but no shops. Very rare places to stay and no real restaurant. You basically eat in someone's home. Some locals also rent rooms. Very well preserved and natural. You can then go hiking along the reserve. This place definitely deserves 5 dots. We spend the rest of out stay in Guizhou looking for this kind of places. It also had no entry fee unlike the high entry fee at Xijiang.
