About Liannan

The Liannan Yao Autonomous County, located in northwest Guangdong Province, is a population center of the Yao people. Liannan is covered by undulating hills, winding streams, and trees that stretch toward the sky. Yao villages are nestled among the seemingly endless stretch of tall and precipitous mountain peaks. Their rustic mountain villages, mysterious folk customs, and eye-catching multicolored traditional dress show off the unique charm of the Yao culture. An even deeper cultural experience awaits during the Yao people’s grand Shuagetang (singing) festival and during performances of their beautiful and uninhibited dance of the long drum.
