With a history of more than 600 years, this town is well-know for its well-protected ancient constructions and beautiful natural scenery.
We will proceed to Kaili to start today’s tour. Our tour will start with visit to Qingman Long-Skirt Miao Village. It got the name for the reason that the Miao people wear long skirts in this place. This village still preserves its old appearance after hundreds of years. The bluestone-paved lanes, wooden stilt houses, and Miao people wearing traditional clothes and silver accessories are still telling you a long history. To have a better idea of what the Miao people’s life looks like, we will have a local family visit. Then, head for Shiqiao Miao Village to explore the ancient way of paper making. The ancient way makes paper through bark and tree roots. With a history of over one thousands years in Shiqiao Miao Village, paper making is one of the greatest inventions in ancient China and is reputed as a ‘live fossil’ in the history of paper making. Boji Miao Village will be our next long-skirt Miao village for the Miao minority tour today. There lives more than one hundred Miao Families. It is famous for its peaceful and bucolic scenery.
