Frequently Asked Questions About Guizhou Tours

1. Is Guizhou worth visiting? Why travel to Guizhou?


Unique natural scenery: Hidden amongst jagged karst mountains, misty waterfalls, and undulating hills, Guizhou is a gem hidden under layers of gorgeous scenery, and with each step, a new vista emerges. Here you will encounter the tallest waterfall in Asia at 255ft (77.8m) high and 331ft (101m) wide - the Huangguoshu Waterfall, the holy Buddhist mountain with an elevation of 2,570 meters above sea level- the Fanjingshan Mountain, and the UNESCO world heritage site -Libo Maolan National Nature Reserve.

Rich ethnic minority culture: Guizhou is home to 48 ethnic minorities out of China’s 56 ethnic groups. The ethnic groups live in beautiful villages untouched by modern development. Their ancient traditions, architecture, and cuisine captivate visitors. Their bright festivals and villages offer plenty of scope for exploration. There are various ethnic minority festivals throughout the year, where celebrations will bring about their most colorful clothing and gathering for a big party. Dance and singing are also predominant, with many of them originating from ancient courtship rituals, like the Sister’s Meal Festival, which is the local version of Valentine’s Day.

The development of transportation: Until recently Guizhou is one of China's least accessible regions due to its mountainous terrain but in 2014 a new high-speed rail line connecting the province with the southern boomtown of Guangzhou, near Hong Kong. The train ride will take 5.5hrs from Hong Kong to its capital city Guiyang. Join us to explore this largely undiscovered province in southwestern China. Learn more on GUIZHOU TRAVEL GUIDE.
