China is a multi-racial country and we love to visit those ethnic minorities when we travel, and to learn about their culture, legends, tradition and heritage, and to see things the way they see them.
The ancient town of Dali in Yunnan province was used to be the residence of King Piluoge of the Nanzhou State (year 738-937). You can image the scale of Nanzhou Kingdom when looking at the present state of Dali. Unlike other ancient town, the local people still live there. They run their shops, do house work and social and network around this ancient town, and help keep the town in its original colour. There are three ethnic tribes in Dali: the Bai, the Dai and the Yi, each have their own different colourful costumes.
