The Boji Miao Village or Daboji in Chinese, is situated in Danzhai County in Guizhou. This ancient village was named after its shovel-shaped apperance. Indeed, a small river made the almost complete tour of the village of Boji in a beautiful arc. They offered many names for the Boji Miao village, but only the shovel-shaped village is remained!

In Boji Miao Village, more than a hundred families of the Miao ethnic group who live away from the modern world. Everything here has remained the origins: men go to the rice fields while women take care of making clothes. Traditional stilt houses are still made of wood, pressed against each other. These houses have two to four floors for the whole family and even the cattle on the ground floor.

The Boji Miao village is not yet accustomed to receiving travelers. Thus, with each new arrival, it is an opportunity for them to celebrate. They greet the foreign visitors to the village with a big smile and a glass of local rice wine! Sometime they even return to do their local activity, the Bench Dance. Suffice to say, the visitors must remember their trip to Guizhou during their lifetime!
