Weather in Nov in Guizhou
What's the weather and average temperature in Guizhou area in mid- end Nov 2017? Is this a good time to visit? And is there any festivals or tribe celebration during this time?

Answered by Sarah | Oct. 18, 2017 21:04

The average temperature in November in Guiyang is around 9C-17C, and it rains sometimes, so you are suggested to take your coat and sweaters if you go to the mountain areas and rain gear is also necessary. It is fine to visit in Nov but the best season is in summer and autumn. There is Lusheng Festival in early November and New Year of Miao Nationality at Leishan area in Novermber.

You can take bus 262 to GY East Bus Station first, then you can take a bus from the east station directly to the village, and the bus leaves at 9:00 and 15:00.
Or you can take a bullet train from Guiyang North to Kaili South, which only takes about 40 minutes and CNY98 for a first class seat, CNY58.5 for a second one.
After that, you can charter a local car to the village, and it may take 1 hour and CNY120-150. You can share the fare with other visitors.

Answered by Nancy from CANADA | Aug. 03, 2017 03:35

Well, you can take the following route for reference.
Day 1: Guiyang – Xiaoqikong Scenic Spot – Xijiang Miao Stockade Village
Day 2: Xijiang – Yedongzhai – Mao Stockage Relics Museum
Day 3: Guiyang – Tianxingqiao Bonsai Garden – Huangguoshu Waterfall (Doupotang Waterfall)

I have to remind you that it will be very crowded during the National Day, and the transportation may be not that easy to catch. For your convenience, it is best to join a tour through an agency so that they can arrange all for you.
