Colourful festivals happen all year around in Guizhou. An example is the Sister’s Meal festival, one of the most colourful festivals in Guizhou. Festivals are a unique chance for photographers to take beautiful pictures of the Miao, Dong, Gejia and Buyi people because everybody is dressed at their best. You will visit the most important places where the festivals will be celebrated. After this wonderful experience you can visit some other villages with different kind of Miao and Dong people with their own distinct costumes, jewellery and habits. A knowledgable guide will go with you to find the best festival places and villages. Our guides are experienced and know the area very well.

Some of these festivals are small and unknown, guaranteed a non touristy and authentic experience.
