Kaili, the capital of southeastern Guizhou Province, is a medium-sized city developing apace after significant recent investment.
There is a lively, thriving atmosphere, and in the evening the centre throngs with people eating out at the numerous street stalls.
With reasonable quality accommodation and good transport links, this is a great base from which to explore the local minority villages of the surrounding area.
These villages, comprising Miao, Bouyi, Dong and Gejia cultures, are at their most vibrant on market days or during the colourful festivals that occur regularly throughout the year.
