Day 1 Arrival in Guiyang
Our guide will greet you outside the baggage claim area of Guiyang Airport and transfer you to the hotel. If time permits, you will have a short rest and go for a visit to Qingyan Ancient Town. Located in the southern suburb of Guiyang City, it is one of the four most famous ancient towns in Guizhou Province. The town has a history of about 620 years and is famous for the well-preserved ancient buildings and elegant natural landscape.

Coming to the town, you may feel a little laborious when climbing the steps to the town gate. Designed for horses carrying tea, each step is quite wide, but it’s difficult for human to cross over in a single step. Thus, the path became an obstacle for enemies who attacked the town. You will also see the houses having double eaves to withstand the rains in Qingyan Ancient Town. As Guizhou is often rainy, the two layers of eaves can protect both the houses and the stores opened on the ground floor. Escorted with our guide, you can take a stroll in the back alley, where the old wall catch people’s eyes. As local shales were piled with the thick glutinous rice pulp between each other, blended with quicklime and yellow sands as well, the old wall is very solid and have stood for over 600 years. The walled back alley is pretty popular especially for shutterbugs, and you can also take beautiful photos there as a memento.

Day 2 Guiyang - Kaili (Miao Ethnic Minority Villages)
Miao minority people
In the morning, you will head for Kaili for a private two-day Miao ethnic minority tour. The first stop will be Qingman Long-Skirt Miao Village. It is so named because the Miao people in the village wear long skirts. The hospitable Miao villagers will greet you into the village by drinking the block way wine. With hundreds of years' history, the village still keeps its original look: bluestone roads, wooden stilt houses, and Miao people in traditional costumes and silver headdresses. You will also visit a local family to get a close touch with the Miao people's life and have lunch in the family house. Afterwards, continue to visit Shiqiao Miao Village to see how paper is made in the traditional way. As one of the four great inventions in ancient China, the traditional way makes use of tree roots and bark to produce paper. Paper making in Shiqiao Miao Village has a history of over 1,000 years, and is regarded as a 'live fossil' in the research of paper making. The last stop of today is another long-skirt Miao village, Boji Miao Village where over 100 Miao households live for generations and is renowned for the tranquil and bucolic scenery.
