province, which is the one of the biggest Dong Minority Villages at Qiandongnan Miao and Dong area. It covers an area of 180,000 square meters. There are more than eight hundred households - more than four thousand people, who are living here. It is known as "The First Liping Dong Village." Top China Travel Agency
had a chance to get close touch with this place.
Zhaoxing Dong village is surrounded by mountains. And a small river slowly flows across the Village. The hanging houses of the Dong minority people are located on the both sides of the river.
The Hanging houses are usually made by china fir, which are mostly two to three floors and built along the river bank or the slopes. There are dyed cloth hanging front of the hanging house.
Drum Tower is the symbol of Dong minority village. There are three or four drum towers in some big Dong minority villages. People stay here for entertainment, toasting in winter and enjoying the cool in summer. This architecture absorbs the essences of ancient Han people’s architecture, but also breaks away from convention of tower.
There is the only street in the village.
In the "National handicrafts shop" , a operator is using a wooden hammer to hammer the cloth. These dyed cloth after hammer and become shiny.
