Baimian Yao Village

Baimian (White face) Yao Village locates at the east Longsheng County, 96km from Guilin City. We can go there by 321 National Highway from Guilin to Longsheng and change to X144 County Road from Longsheng to Ziyuan. As the village is for Yao generations living, it became one of earliest minority tourist scenic spots in Guilin.

There are maples reaching the sky around the village, there is stele with rules of Qing Dynasty on the gateway of the village, and “Red Yao Pole” erecting in the front of the village, which is the worship totem of Yao people. Baimian village lives 35 families of Red Yao with simple and unsophisticated folkway and with unique living custom.

When there are guests coming, Yao girls will wear bright and colorful costumes and sing folk songs to welcome the guests and they will also show you their folk special dances and traditional folk sports competitions. Yao people will also make savory oil tea with the fountain from their ancient “Stone Well”.

This oil tea will make you linger over the taste without giving the expressions to the views.
