Yunnan Ethnic Villages

Yunnan Ethnic Villages

For a long time, the numerous ethnic groups, the long history ,the exotic customs, the peculiar residential architecture, the beautiful landscape and the interesting legends of Yunnan have attracted and haunted many people. However, visitors from far away find it difficult to cover the whole province during their short stay. Intended to cope with this situation and epitomize all these in the landscape on the Dianchi Lake in Kunming, Yunnan Ethnic Village has managed to represent and exhibit the history, the cultures, the customs and the natural village houses of the 26 nationalities in this province. With the inclusion of precipitous hills and beautiful lakes, parks and woods, old and modern treasures, and as an integration of the customs, cultures, music, songs, dances, religious and architecture of the 26 nationalities, the village community has helped to show the world the true nature of Yunnan, a mysterious yet modern garden of ethnic cultures. Now, the community has been approved and named by the State Nationality Commission and the Provincial Nationality Commission as one of their " National Culture Bases".

The whole community will contain 26 villages, and so far the Dai Village, the Bai Village, the Yi Village, the Naxi Village, the Wa Village , the Jinuo Village, the Lahu Village, the Bulang Village and 4 other villages have been completed.

That year its domestic and overseas visitors amounted to more than 1.6 million. In the past years, it has admitted many state and CPC leaders and numerous visitors from the United States, Britain, France , Austria, Spain, Australia, Japan, South Korea, Southeast Asia, Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan.
