    What to expect in Guizhou?

    Guizhou is home to 48 Chinese ethnic groups, second only to Yunnan, each of which have developed their own unique customs and cultures. Among them, Miao and Dong minorities are the two biggest groups in Qiandongnan Autonomous Prefecture. Starting your journey from Kaili and moving onwards, you will see villages of different minorities one after another along with amazing natural sceneries.

    Many traditional festivals are also celebrated among different ethnic groups each year, which attract a lot of travelers from far away. When a festival is hosted, they dress up, prepare a lot of festival food and celebrate it with rich activities, such as singing, dancing, trading and all kinds of competitions. Should you take our private guided tours to Guizhou you may want to try on their traditional dress and join in with the festivities.

    When is the best time to visit Guizhou?

    The climate in Guizhou is often mild and moist, neither extremely hot nor cold. Although the best time for taking Guizhou tour packages is during late August, spring (March-May), summer (June-August) and autumn (September-November) are all wonderful seasons for sightseeing. During these months, you can also expect to experience traditional festivals such as Sanyuesan Festival and Sister's Meal Festival in spring, Liuyueliu Festival in summer, and the Shui New Year Festival in autumn. The best seasons for visiting Huangguoshu Waterfall in Anshun are summer and autumn when the scenery is the most splendid.

      Very thankful to the reasonable arrangement and excellent explanations of our guide, we visited Qingyan Ancient Town, where the natural landscape was elegant and buildings were well-preserved. We also went to some famous Miao villages and visited a local family, thus getting close touch with them. They told us some interesting customs and history of their villages, so we had a deep understanding of their special lifestyle and culture. The relaxing life and luring landscape all attracted me. This Guizhou trip was certainly not taken in vain! ... More

      I traveled with my parents to Guizhou and this small group was much more enjoyable than other large groups we had joined. The guide was dedicated and arranged delicious meals and comfortable accommodation. Her explanations were very excellent and we learned a lot about Guizhou culture. The driver was skillful and gentle. Very thankful to their hard efforts, we had a good time on this trip! I would recommend them to my friends who want to travel to Guizhou.

      The guide was familiar with the folk custom of Guizhou, so her introduction to every spot was excellent and funny. She was also kind to us and good at dealing with issues. I was impressed by the Qingyan Ancient Town, with a long history of about 620 years. There were many well-preserved ancient buildings, where we felt the luring charm of the antique town and appreciated the elegant natural landscape.

      Of course, other spots were also interesting, such as Matang Gejia Village, Miao Ethnic Minority Villages and Huangguoshu Waterfall. All in all, this Guizhou trip was satisfying. Thanks for the high-quality service provided by TravelChinaGuide. We would choose it again for our next trip!

      After the Xi’an tour, we had a great Guizhou trip last month. Thanks to the good arrangement of TravelChinaGuide, we stayed in a comfortable and clean hotel. With air-conditioned rooms, we had a good sleep. Our guide Shirley was beautiful, humorous and responsible!

      Many thanks to our guide Lee and driver who offered us first-class service. Lee was very enthusiastic and careful. When arriving at Qingman Long-Skirt Miao Village, she arranged the hotel in advance and helped us to place baggage, which saved our energy and gave us great convenience. We saw tourists in other tour groups dragging their luggage along the flagstone road, so tired. So lucky to choose this group. We would recommend TravelChinaGuide to others who want to visit China.
