A twenty-minute drive from Anshun will take you to the Tun Bu village. It is a very old and peculiar Han Chinese settlement existing in the southwest part of China. Here women wear Ming dynasty costumes and the houses, typically featuring Ming architectural styles, are frozen in time. Attraction Intro: Tianlong Village

Some things are in English but a basic understanding of Mandarin would be helpful. The maps are in English. The locals speak a little English as English is mandatory in Chinese high schools, so if you ask around enough, you'll find somebody who can speak both languages.
A bus ride is 1 yuan or about 15 cents American at the current exchange rate. A taxi ride starts at 2 yuan and it's not that expensive to travel far. A half and hour ride in a taxi is about 50 yuan or 10 American dollars.
Also, I should mention that it's about as safe or safer than any mid sized American city. The biggest problem is pickpocketing, but even that isn't frequent. The locals are mostly curious and friendly so you should have no problem getting help to find what you need.
