“Miao Minority Village near Fenghuang”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

I did this as part of a school trip, but am not sure how you would visit this village on your own, or if you have to pay a fee to get in. There may be tour groups you can join in Fenghuang. It's worth visiting, since it's a very scenic area. The village is located up in the hills and surrounded by valleys and terraced paddy fields where farmers still plow the soil with oxen and yoke. The villagers supplement their income with revenue from the (mostly Chinese) tour groups that visit, so they welcome visitors. While there are a lot of women selling handicrafts, they're not aggressive. The bathroom facilities and the food are basic but get the job done. Not wheelchair accessible -- there are a lot of steps in the village. We visited a one-room school, walked around the village, saw demonstrations of how to spin cloth, and were treated to a show with drums, dancing, and fire-eating. A nice way to spend an afternoon.
