Authentic Chinese hill tribes without mass tourism-yet


"Guizhou Province has long been China's least accessible regions. As a result, its ethnic minority Miao and Dong mountain villages reatain an unhurried pace and authentic feel compared with Lijiang, China's famous minority center, which draws 20 million visitors a year at least for now. Now Guihzou too, is opening more widely to tourism. The trip from Guangzhou was shortened from more than 20 hours to four after the opening of a $20 billion high-speed railway at the end of 2014. "
