- Buyi village is a wonderful world of stones, with simple furniture, such as tables, stoves and washbasins, all made of stone.
- Dai people mainly live in Yunnan province, where the climate is suitable for growing bamboo. You can call their village “bamboo garden” because most of their houses, such as girders, tiles and roofs, are made of this green plant. They live in stilt houses supported by wood.
No matter which village you go to, young boys and girls will warmly welcome you. If you come at the right time, you will be able to attend their unique festivals, such as Dai Water Splashing Festival, Yi Fireworks Festival and Lisu Knife Bar Festival.
