The Wujiang Village sits among the karst landforms of Zunyi city in Guizhou Province, only a 1.5-hour drive from Guiyang and a 40-minute drive from Zunyi’s downtown area. In 2006, it was included on a list of traditional Chinese villages selected to receive better protection and development.

Home to well-preserved residential buildings featuring unique local characteristics, Wujiang Village has done its part to pass on and protect its local folk customs. Here, visiting tourists can explore the natural landscape in and around the village and experience the glamor of the locality’s intangible cultural heritage in an immersive manner.

As a prominent tourist destination with comprehensive functions such as sightseeing, leisure, taking holidays and exhibitions, the Wujiang Village takes advantage of the natural environment and folk custom of Northern Guizhou, which enables tourists to explore the natural landscape in and around the village and experience the glamour of folk customs in Northern Guizhou in an immersive manner.

Besides the natural and human landscape, colorful cultural performance is also an outstanding characteristic of Wujiang Village. Visitors can enjoy a lake cruise or drink tea while listening to opera. In addition, they can also take part in some singing and dancing performances with ethnic features.
