At the foot of the Western Hills and bordered on the south by the Dianchi Lake, Yunnan Ethnic Village is a theme park of sorts--an ethnographic display of the architecture and ways of life of Yunnan's minority population.
Visitors, both Chinese and international, always find it difficult to cover the whole province and catch all the sights during a limited and often short stay. In order to solve this problem the Yunnan Ethnic Village was created to bring the history, culture, and customs of 26 different Yunnan minorities together into one exhibit. The setting of Dianchi lake and the Western Hills makes it that much more attractive.
