Yunnan Minority Groups of China

There are approximately 25 different minority ethnic groups in Yunnan.  Whilst I was staying in Lijiang I hired a tour guide/driver for the day and emailed before I arrived outlining what I would like to see. The main one was to see different ethnic groups.

Unfortunately when he picked me up he informed me that all the villages near Lijiang he had contacted were away for festivals.  He did take me to a Naxi village but I had already seen Naxi Women in Lijiang Square.

He did take me to a Tibetan Monastery which I loved, it was the highlight of my trip.  I also watched minority groups at a show in Xizhou Village, you can read about it here. I also saw a Bai lady in Dali whilst I was sitting in a cafe. These photos are from Flickr and I have asked for permission to use them on my blog.
