When thinking about travelling in Yunnan Province, high mountains and beautiful valleys may be the first things that come into a tourist's mind. But there's more than spectacular mountain scenery in Yunnan - there's also a spot that is as pretty as any to be found in East China's Jiangsu or Zhejiang provinces. The Puzhehei tourist region in Qiubei County in the southeast of Yunnan Province is a charming land boasting beautiful karst land formations, lakes and the unique cultures of the Zhuang, Miao, Yi and Bai ethnic groups living there. Puzhehei, 11 km from Qiubei County, covering an area of 85 square km, is a basin scenic area with some 300 green isolated peaks fringing the banks of the lakes. Girls of the Zhuang ethnic group dressed in folk costumes which are adorned with jingling silver ornaments and embroidery, row little wooden boats and send visitors along the winding 21-km water corridor through Luoshuidong Lake, Puzhehei Lake and The Cave of the Immortal(仙人洞).

How to fit in
It’s easier to get around in Qiubei county if you know some basic Mandarin, especially when ordering food, but there are a number of important points of business etiquette to remember too. Confucianism, with its attention to demeanour, harmony, and preservation of “face,” plays a central role. Meetings always begin with a handshake. Give a slight nod and don’t be too vigorous when shaking hands, it could come across as being aggressive. Stay away from physical contact after this, including pats on the arm. If a host is guiding you they may tug your sleeve. Have business cards translated on one side. It is considered fortuitous if they are printed in gold ink. Be sure to place received cards in a case rather than your pocket. Avoid humour since jokes may not come across as you intend. Gift etiquette and negotiations can be complex, so it’s best to read more deeply about them.
