Get up in the early morning. Our car will pick you up and drive about 4 hours from Puzhehei to A’E Xinzhai Village of Maguan County. Visit the masters of Zhuang ethnic woodblock print. You can also visit their workshop and watch how they make the woodblock print.
-Yunnan's A'e Xinzhai Village of Maguan County houses an area well-known for its diverse and beautiful traditional woodblock prints. These prints are made by male farmers from the Zhuang ethnic minority group. In Zhuang culture, men have traditionally produced prints while women have focused on producing elaborate embroidery work. Much of their work was done in obscurity; then in 1975, the male farmers once again began to pick up woodblock print making techniques. The woodblock prints nowadays depict agricultural scenes, the daily lives of the Zhuang people, and provide travellers with a glimpse of their traditions and customs. After 30 years of perfecting these skills, the village now boasts three generations of print making farmers. Many males in the village from old to young now participate in this activity, and there is even a 250 meter-long painting near the entrance of the village that depicts dragon worship, and depicts the daily customs of the Zhuang group. There are over 17 million Zhuang People that live in China, making it the second largest ethnic minority group in China. The majority of Zhuang people live in Guangxi and Yunnan. So if you are traveling around the area, you should consider heading to a Zhuang village to take a look around.

Drive about 6 hours from A’E Xinzhai Village to Chengzhai Bailuo Ethnic Village of Donggan Town in Malipo County. You can have some stops if you are interested in the villages on the way to your destination. After arrival, visit Chengzhai Village. You can see many villagers wearing their ethnic costume.
Bailuo, a branch of the Yi ethnic group, have called Chengzhai home for several hundred years. Comparing to other Yi ethnic branches, the Bailuo members differ a lot as far as their clothing, dietary habits and dwellings are concerned. Due to their quaint costumes, exotic culture and distinctive Ganlan (stilted houses) architectures, Bailuo people have aroused great attention. Enriched by the ethnic culture, the batik craft highlights the culture of the Bailuo people who are traditionally adept at making quaint, elegant costumes on their own. Carrying modern aesthetic elements, and with delicate workmanship, it has brought great visual impacts one can't help marveling at.

Today, you will visit the masters of loom weaving and batik of Bailuo ethnic in Chengzhai Village. After that, drive about 4 hours to Guangnan County. You will visit the masters of Zhuang ethnic embroidery and brocade in Liancheng Town of Guangnan County.
Zhuang embroidery is mainly used for decorating dresses, and also for strap, curtain, sheet, etc. The embroidered ball which delivers amorous affection between man and woman is the most ethnic art work that represents Zhuang nationality. The main embroidery patterns are lotus, kylin, gourds, flowers and other auspicious patterns such as longevity.
Zhuang Brocade is one of the four famous Chinese brocades (the other three are: Yun Brocade from Nanjing, Shu Brocade from Sichuan Province, and Song Brocade from Suzhou). This splendid handicraft was originated in the Song Dynasty (960 – 1276 AD). They are woven with cotton, silk or flax threads into colorful patterns. Images of flowers, plants and animals are mostly adopted. The Brocade is very durable, and is widely used in making quilt covers, handbags, aprons, table-cloth, scarves, wall hangings, cushions, etc.

Day 5: Guangnan County-Kunming
This morning, drive to the high-speed railway station in Guangnan County. Depart from Guannan. You will arrive in Kunming one and half an hour later. The driver will pick you up and take you to Yunnan Ethnic Villages. In this theme park, you will visit a master of Miao ethnic embroidery.
The Miao are among the larger ethnic populations in China. They also live in neighboring countries as well as in the United States and Australia, where they are more generally known as the Hmong. In China, they are mostly concentrated in Guizhou Province and Yunnan Province in the southwest, where subgroups are identified by their dress and embroidery motifs, such as “Big Flower Miao” and “Small Flower Miao.” Working with silk and cotton thread, as well as horsehair, embroiderers adorn cuffs, sleeves, collars, and tunic fronts with designs of mythical animals (dragons and phoenixes) and ordinary insects, fish, and flowers. These designs are not only decorative; more importantly, many record daily life, life cycle events, and community legends and history.
Today, drive to the airport and you will finish your ethnic craft culture tour in Yunnan.
