Yuping Dong Town Scenery Park, located in Tianping Town, Yuping Dong Autonomous County, Tongren City, Guizhou Province, China, is a scenic area themed around Dong ethnic culture and also a national 4A-level tourist destination. The park covers an area of about 1.2 square kilometers and features Dong traditional architecture and culture as its main attractions, including drum towers, wind and rain bridges, and Dong residential houses, as well as cultural displays and experiential activities such as Dong songs and dances, traditional Dong costumes, and Dong cuisine.

The drum tower in the park is one of the representatives of Dong traditional architecture and a symbol of Dong culture. Approximately 20 meters high, it is made of wood and constructed with architectural brackets, serving as a venue for meetings, deliberations, and entertainment for the Dong people. Another feature of the park, the wind and rain bridge, also represents Dong traditional architecture. It is a stone arch bridge spanning a stream, with a covered walkway and railings that provide shelter and rest for pedestrians.

In addition to architectural and cultural displays, the park offers activities such as Dong song and dance performances, Dong costume displays, and Dong culinary experiences, allowing visitors to deeply understand Dong culture and lifestyle.
