China Folk Culture Villages in Shenzhen Tour Guide:
Did you know that China has over 56 ethnic groups, each living in a different part of China with its own culture, traditions, architecture and cuisine? Experience them all in one single complex at the China Folk Culture Village.
Peek into the Buyi Village and discover a magnificent stone world, where just about everything, right from the furniture to the stoves is made out of stone. Enjoy an insight into the matriarchal Mosuo group, which is renowned for its walking marriages and quakeproof flats and check out the wonderful bamboo houses and gardens of the Dai group, an ethnic group from the Yunnan Province, a region renowned for its abundant bamboo plantations. You can even visit the cave houses of North Shaanxi and the Yurts of the Mongols, a nomadic group.
In addition to seeing the dwelling places of different ethnic groups, you can experience their diverse culture through live performances of their music, dances and traditional practices. Join the ethnic groups in their singing and dancing and watch them create interesting artefacts on the spot. You can even buy a souvenir and sample their local cuisines for an interesting gourmet adventure.
Additional highlights of the village include recreations of the local habitat of the different groups, which means you can venture through a stone forest of Yunnan, towering age-old banyans from Nanbin and a forest of coconut palms of Hainan. And if your timing is right, you can even experience the festivities of the many events and festivals of China, recreated in the China Folk Culture Village.
