If you want to know about Dong etnics, this is the perfect place, drum towers, wind and rain bridges and all tipical features of dong etnics. A walking town without cars and with nocturn show.

Don't get me wrong--this is a quaint, lovely little place to explore with friends, family or loved ones--but it's not really authentic. At least anymore. After a 6.5 hour trek from our hotel in Guilin, we arrived in what looked like a movie set--shiny and...More

This is a really charming village occupied by mainly the Dong minority people. The village is mostly original and the people are lovely. Go before it becomes a tourist trap and over-run. Above the village is a wonderful view of the valley with superb terracing;...More

It's only 6km from the high-speed rail station of Congjiang. The admission fee is RMB100, which I think is too expensive because there's not much thing to see, walking across the village only takes about 15 minutes, totally, 2 hours is enough for the whole...More

ZhaoXingDong village is big beautiful and developed. I was welcomed with fireworks and a performance, which i very much enjoyed. Even had dinner with the locals who love to sing while drinking. Would like to stay longer but have to stick to my travel plan.

First of all, this town has changed a lot in the past 2 years, so any information from before then should be disregarded. The Chinese govt. got a large loan from the world bank to rebuild and expand the town for tourism -- there is...More
