Day 2: Guiyang, Excursion to Baojiatun Village & Zhoujia Village
Baojiatun Village, about 65 km away from Guiyang, is a famous Han village with a history of more than 600 years and often takes about two hours' drive on the road. Here, you may see the locals making traditional local Han-style belts by hand, enjoy a local opera called Dixi performed by villagers, and learn some moves of the local martial art, Baojia Quan.
Later, proceed to another village, Zhoujia Village to experience mask-making. Try to make a small wooden mask for yourself with a carving knife under the guidance of a master. When the tour ends, go back to the hotel and enjoy the remaining time at leisure.
