Guizhou In-depth

Nestled in a verdant valley, Zhaoxing is actually a collection of six traditional Dong villages. Difficult to access, these villages remain very few open to the rest of the world. Only the bravest take dilapidated road to lead to this place lost in the inviolate Chinese nature. And they can never top of the trip. River and streams through the village, houses on several floors and small alleys, all located in the hollow of the hills give the impression of a village frozen in time. Protected by a roof, the bridges of the wind and rain span the river provide locals with a safer means of transport during storms. The sumptuous drum towers, five in number, are scattered in Zhaoxing. These impressive constructions of wood, just like the houses, are built without nails.

Traditional Culture

The village of Zhaoxing is lively throughout the day by local culture. Men gather from a bridge or on one of the squares of the village to chat or play cards, women are seated at their doorstep and weave clothes or wash vegetables, children have fun in the maze of alleys or bathe in the river...It is far from the hassles of modern civilization. Once the work in land or weaving completed, community life takes its place. In the morning, everyone is working to clean the streets of Zhaoxing in order to start the day off right.

Songs of the corner

as in many Dong villages, the villagers work and live to the rhythm of polyphonic songs. It is not unusual to see a small group by Dong, often grouped according to their age at the bend of a road or inside a House. With pleasure, they invite visitors to attend their private performance and share a wonderful time with them.
Otherwise, the girls of the village spend their finest clothes for give a little show on the village square. The alliance between traditional festival costume, ethnic dance and melodious song is the most beautiful, especially when it is done with a smile and natural joie de vivre of the Dong.
