Hi,

Guiyang is my hometown and I work in Hangzhou currently. But I'm willing to help you ask the related services and the fee you have to pay.

You just need English speaking guide/driver plus minivan rental for 4 days? How about your accommodation?

I will help you to ask if you offer me your accurate require.

Hi, have you already found guide and rental car?

I just got the news that the Festival may start from April 16th and ending on April 18 this year. Shidong Miao village near Taijiang will mainly celebrate the festival but it is not suggested to go there on the first day because the official presentation held by local government will be held. You can go there on April 17th or April 18th and spend the left days to explore Xijiang and Zhenyuan nearby.

We are also traveling to this area and want to find a guide/driver to see the Miao Villages. We won't get there until around the 18th of April. We just started researching so would love sharing information. Please let us know if you have success finding someone, someplace to stay or general information.

I will get back to you if I learn anything interesting.

If you want to find local agency to offer you driver and English guide, I can help you to contact. For the suggested places to go, Xijiang miao village(西江苗寨), the largest Hmong village is highly recommended and I can share with you the information. Actually, spending several days in southeast Guizhou is really an refreshed getaway to explore both the natural and ethnic charming.

Hi,

I have sent you message.

Personally, I suggest you'd better adjust your schedule to arrive at April 17th or earlier so that you can enjoy the wonderful festival or you may regret to miss it.

Waiting for your reply^_^

My husband and I will be traveling in the Guizhou area in mid April. I would like to be there for the sisters meal festival. We will be coming to that area from Kunming. Can you send me information regarding getting from Kunming to the Miao villages and a travel agent or ftour operator. Where is the best village for us to stay to see the festival?

thank you,

Hi,

It is best to fly from Kunming to Guiyang and then start from Guiyang to view the amazing Sister Meal Festival, but also depends upon your expected stay traveling days because it is also some interesting places to view if you take bus from Kunming to Guiyang including Luoping and Xingyi.

I'll send you message about this festival because before I have help others to design it. ^_^
