Guizhou Province, often abbreviated as “Gui” or “Qian”, boasts Guiyang as its capital city. Situated in the southwestern part of China, it rests atop the Yungui Plateau. The terrain slopes from west to east, characterized by numerous highland mountains, earning it the moniker “eight slices of mountains, one slice of river, and one slice of field.” It stands as the only province in China without plains. This unique landscape seems like a captivating gift from nature to China, with its mountains ranging from picturesque to rugged, and its waters varying from grandiose to serene. Amidst the rare plains lie distinctive ethnic villages, each exuding its own charm.

The southwestern part of Guizhou encompasses the Qiannan Buyei and Miao Autonomous Prefecture (Xingyi City), the southeastern part embraces the Qiandongnan Miao and Dong Autonomous Prefecture (Kaili City), and the southern part hosts the Qiannan Buyei and Miao Autonomous Prefecture. These three autonomous prefectures encapsulate the entirety of Miao and Dong ethnic cultures, embodying their customs, traditions, and history. In towns like Zhenyuan, extensive ancient residential courtyards, alleyways, docks, and ethnic folk cultures blend into vibrant and diverse cultural tapestries.
