The Typical Miao Buildings 

The Nanhua Miao village has curled up there for over 500 years in the mountains of Guizhou, which is only fifteen kilometers away from Kaili, Guizhou. To visit the village, there is only one entrance: cross the Nanhua Wind and Rain of Nanhua. Just step over the Bala River to arrive in the Miao village still with very traditional architecture. 
Located on the gentle slope of the mountain, the wooden stile houses are partly to provide a habitat for Miao people of Nanhua village. Whether its drum towers, pavilions, rooms or houses, everything is built entirely of wood. No metal parts are used to fit these buildings with several floors!

Traditions in Nanhua Miao Viillage

Still little touched by the tourism, Nanhua Miao village keeps very interesting Miao traditions. When the travelers arrive in the village, generally you will be greeted by one or more Miao women in traditional costumes singing songs and then the local rice wine come out for the occasion.
Attention, this happy welcome ceremony can't be refused. If one hands you a small cup of alcohol, you must drink it up. If there are several cups, it might even be asked to toast a small cup to each singer. Whatever, if you like alcohol, then enjoy it, if you can't hold your drink, just get over it and please respect their tradition. BTW, this kind of ceremony can be repeated up to 10 times among the local Miaos util reaching the home. So you can imagine how well the capacity of the Miao's alcohol.
