Xijiang Miao Village for example, is considered to be a living museum of the Miao minority. This village gives any visitor the chance to enjoy the local culture and see their particular charm.

Considered to be the largest Miao minority region, Xijiang Miao village is actually the consolidation of several small Miao villages. During a walk to Xijiang, so do not be content from the main village, sometimes touristy, but from the surrounding hills to explore the wilder parts of Xijiang. Here, they are more than 1,000 Miao families who have lived for centuries, installed in wooden houses built by their hands. On the slopes of hills, these people work in the surrounding lush rice paddies and also produce lavish embroidery, batiks. Silver jewelry is also important in the Miao culture; they are supposed to chase away bad spirits. During local festivals, Miao girls then put on their finest jewelry in silver on the body but also on their clothes. Then the created costume is impressive.
