The Yunnan Nationalities Village is located at a narrow peninsula at the north shore of Dian Lake. Villages of over 25 minorities including the Yi, Dai, Miao, Jingpo, Wa, Hani, Naxi, Dulong and others have been built here. Through various displays and re-creations of the original villages, the Yunnan Ethnic Village displays the diverse local ethnic culture. Villages of different styles are well arranged and show visitors their unique charm. Displaying a variety of buildings, lifestyles, and religious beliefs in the region, the village is a microcosm of Yunnan's colorful and diverse ethnic culture.

Visitors can enjoy not only a variety of architectural arts, clothing, and remarkable customs, but also live presentations of cultural songs and dance. Trying the fantastic food and purchasing some lovely souvenirs to bring home also provide a memorable experience.
