Guizhou Province, located in the southeast of China, has only recently been noticed by travelers. Guizhou has a very large ethnic minority population and because not too many visitors come to the province, they have remained untouched. Their customs and traditions are intact, and offer an amazing experience for any visitor to Guizhou. On a Guizhou tour, visitors can witness how these minority groups have lived for centuries and experience the unique aspects of each minority group and be dazzled by their hospitality.
Relatively unknown to foreign tourists, Guizhou is a hidden world with amazing natural beauty and diversified minority cultures. For its natural beauty, the famous Huanguoshu Waterfall, fabulous Dragon Palace Cave, the beautiful Malinghe Canyon, plus the endless seas of rape-seed flowers in spring, make more than just proving samples. Moreover, Guizhou offers you an ideal place to appreciate flavored minority cultures of China which have been kept unchanged and untouched for centuries. Take a spring tour to Guizhou, you can personally see their colorful clothes, try some culinary delights and take part in their traditional festivals (Sister’s Meal Festival on April 17; Siyueba Festival on May 10), which makes a pleasant contrast to modern city life.
Guizhou is home to dozens of ethnic minority groups. One of the largest is the Miao ethnic minority group. Over 3,600,000 people, half of China’s Miao population live in Guizhou. With a history of over 4,000 years, the Miao are one of the oldest of China’s minority groups. The Miao minority group can be found not only in Guizhou, but also in Hainan, Hubei, Sichuan, Gansu, Guizhou, Qinghai, Hunan, Guangdong, Yunnan, and Guangxi.
