Holidays to Guizhou, China

Allow us to let you in on a secret – Chinese tourists are shunning the popular areas of Guilin and Dali and heading to Guizhou province of China instead. Why? Well, this is where you can discover some of China’s lesser known (but no less spectacular) natural beauty and immerse yourself in the lives of some of China’s fascinating and diverse ethnic minority groups. 

The undulating and verdant countryside of this region is punctuated by karst outcrops. Head to the Huangguoshu Falls to marvel at the waterfalls and the rainbows that dance in their mist in this cave and karst complex in Anshun. If you’re a real sucker for watery spectacles, then other falls will tempt you too, such as the impressive and less crowded 76-metre-high Shizhangdong Waterfall. More dazzling natural formations can be found Dragon Palace Cave, Zhijin Cave and Danxia Landform. 

Yet a visit to the Guizhou province is much more than just lovely scenery. It’s a region of China that has dozens of ethnic minority groups, providing visitors with a captivating insight into a myriad of cultures and customs. Sometimes seemingly untouched by modern life, the existence in some parts of Guizhou province is fascinating. Traditional farms and old villages reveal intriguing customs to learn about. And isn’t that what travel is all about?

I became fluent in Mandarin during my time living, studying and working in China. From there I travelled to every corner of China. Beijing is my favourite city, I love finding amazing places to eat and trying new dishes.
