Picked up from your downtown hotel in Guiyang, then head to Qingyan Ancient Village, about 29 km south of Guiyang city center. It is a former military outpost with a history of over 600 years dating back to 1378 in Ming Dynasty. It is a pleasant escape from the bustle and hustle with its stone-flagged streets and restores city walls. The ancient town is elaborately designed and artistically built with scattered temples, old Ming and Qing buildings, well known for exhibiting five hundreds painted arhat sculptures.
Return to the city center to visit Guiyang New Museum. Guizhou Provincial New Museum is a comprehensive museum with a construction area of 46,000 square, 10 times the old museum which dates back to the year 1958. It mainly displays the artifacts related to ethnic minority groups including embroidery, wax dying, brocade, silver work and many more.
Continue to visit Jiaxiu Tower. Jiaxiu Tower is perched on the southern bank of Nanming River. It was originally built based a giant rock dating back to Ming Dynasty ( 1368 – 1644). In Qing Dynasty it was rebuilt for several times and the present pavilion dates back to 1909. It is a three-story pavilion 20 meters high with white stone railings, Nanming River passing by at its front. A stone archway bridge named “Fuyu Bridge” connects the pavilion and spans the river. It has a stunning view with clear rivers and green mountains on its four side.
Back to your downtown hotel at the end of the day tour.
