Guizhou is a poly ethnic province in the south east of China, home to the Miao, Dong, Tujia, and Bai minorities. Each has a population of more than 100,000. The province boasts a good variety of high-grade minority culture resources. Still yet unspoiled by large tourist development as seen in the surrounding provinces such as Guangxi, Yunnan and Sichuan, its relative isolation has made the region one of the best kept secrets in China. Its stunning landscape, characterized by limestone karst hills, jagged peaks and terraced rice fields, as well as its colourful ethnic minority cultures have made Guizhou a unique natural area for anthropologists, photographers and adventurous travellers. Guizhou is well known for its unspoiled minority culture, where you will find ancient life styles and traditional customs. The Miao are known for elaborate embroidery and exquisite work with silver. Silver accessories are a standard for the Miao.
