  1. Shuitianwanzi Miao ethnic village in Weixin County,Zhaotong

Weixin, one of Yunnan's counties in the northeast, is on the southern brink of Sichuan basin. Since ancient times, it has been known as "the place where the rooster's crowing can be heard in Yunnan, Sichuan and Guizhou provinces". Shuitianwanzi is a Miao ethnic village in Weixin. Its history can data back to the early years of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911). Before entering the village, one can see a general archaised wooden village gate 300 meters to the entrance to the village. The gate appears good visually because it has designed with painted pillars and flying eaves; and the gate is said to be magically capable of protecting the village and exorcising or repelling evils. Stepping into the village, one will find a little square at the centre of the village where local villagers serve visitors wines called "lan lu jiu" (wine served at the road). In most of such Miao ethnic villages, visitors have to drink the wines, and even sing antiphonally with the villagers. The local rule is: Only you drink the wine and sing songs, can you be let in. The entire village is a folk museum of the Miao ethnic culture. In the village, you can observe the ancestor's house and daily utensils such as grinding mills, looms, spinning wheels, mills for making Ciba cake (glutinous rice cake), and farming tools. While behind the village, you can find see-saw mills and fairground for Huashan Festival etc.
