Liannan Yao Autonomous county has been called "little Guilin" where the aboriginal Yao people still keep their traditional lifestyle. The Sanpai Yao's dwellings were originally located on higher mountain top but moved to the present site for the easier access of visits.

The Yao dwellings are mud houses with wood-and-bamboo structure built on hillsides. The roofs of front houses are at the same height of the ground level of the rear houses, with an aisle connecting houses. The separate houses are therefore connected into an orderly line called "yao pai".

The Yao people retain a traditional way of living by do weaving, embroidery and agricultural production. To see how they live, visitors are able to enter their rooms. You generally see a smoked meat hung beside the stove in a dark and poorly air-circulated kitchen, or a wood bath tub put in the primitive bed room.

In addition to visiting the dwelling houses and primitive rooms, visitors could watch how Yao women do weaving outside their houses. It is also pleasant to watch Yao people dancing with their unique and colorful costume. Yao women weave outside their rooms. In the evening, visitors are invited to join a camping fire program with Nan Yao traditional dancing and singing performance.

Buses are available form Liannan station and it takes 25 minutes to arrive.
