Best tourist spots for crowd-free May Day holiday snaps

3. Miaowang City, Songtao Miao Autonomous County, Guizhou province

When talking about ancient towns and ethnic villages, people would talk about Fenghuang Ancient Town. But in recent years, as tourist flock in, Fenghuang appears to have lost much of its original charm.

So here we have City of Miaowang. It's located in the neighboring province of Fenghuang Ancient Town (just 39 km away from Fenghuang). Miaowang City is the one of the best-preserved ancient villages of the Miao ethnic group in southwestern China, and it's still under the radar of many backpackers.

Miaowang City is famous for its eight-trigram-style landscape, mysterious valley, an underground arsenal which now has become fossilized, and its endless oceans of bamboo forest.

By visiting Miaowang City, you could also enjoy the unique culture of the Miao people. They are both romantic and courageous. The will sing you love songs with unique Miao characteristics, step on "mountains of blades", jump into "the ocean of fire", and you are welcome to dance with the Miao people.

It is very convenient for visitors to reach from Hunan, Sichuan provinces and Chongqing by driving, buses or rail.
