Trip Moments

The largest village in southeastern Yunnan is more primitive than Xijiang Miao Village. Liping belongs to the Qiang Autonomous Prefecture of Southeast Guizhou, and many of the Yi people's villages, the most famous of which is Zhaoxing Village. Most people may not have heard of it, but it was named "China's most beautiful rural town" in the "National Beauty China" event of China National Geographic magazine. Whether Zhaoxing is the most beautiful, I have reservations, but it is indeed very special. has more than 1,000 households and more than 4,000 people. Although it is already the biggest one in this piece, it is still quite small. From the beginning to the end, if you walk, you can cross the entire village in 15 minutes. However, there are many things to watch in the stockade. The first is the architecture of the Yi nationality -- the Hanging House, the Drum Tower, the Flower Bridge, and the Stage. The Drum Tower can be said to be the symbol of the Qiangzhai Village. It is also the activity center of the Dangzhai Village. Every morning, the Drum Tower will be lit up. Everyone will be surrounded by fire, chat and play chess. Many important activities in the stockade will also be held in the Drum Tower. There are five Drum Towers in Zhaoxing Village, which represent Ren, Yi, Li, Zhi, and Xin. The Yi people also believed in Confucianism. The most interesting thing is to meet a local full moon wine. The red and white weddings of the Yi people will be banqueted by the people of Quanzhai. The place where the wine is placed is in the Drum Tower. At noon, it has already begun to prepare. A bit of iron pot is supported to cook and stir-fry. Everyone says that they are busy and busy. It was officially opened in the evening, and I roughly counted at least 50 tables, and the scene was big enough. I am curious if I just sit down and eat it. Later, I found out that I wanted to think more. I used to give gifts to qualify for dinner. It turns out that a few famous people who run the full moon wine are also not allowed to make money. Hahaha.
