  • Minority groups

    In some of the more rural parts of the country ethnic minority groups can be found in large numbers. Many of the same tribes that are found in Laos, Cambodia and Thailand have also settled in Yunnan province and also in Guizhou and Guangxi. Many still wear there traditional dress and so a visit to these regions is often a colourful one!

Visit Shaxi, China

Today the village of Shaxi receives surprisingly few visitors, and you are unlikely to see many tourists, either domestic or foreign. It is pristinely preserved, reminiscent of a bygone era in China.

The village of Shaxi is fabled as one of the key stopping points on the so called 'tea-horse' route - ancients trade routes that ferried caravans of pu'er tea from the south of Yunnan and onto Tibet, Nepal, Burma as well as other parts of China.

You will most likely see plenty of local minority people in traditional dress, especially if you happen to be in town on Friday, which is market day.
