Ethnic culture

There are some ethnic people living  there, so you should respect their customs and avoid doing something bad to effect their lives.                                             

1.Avoiding crossing the fireplace. The Yi ethnic minority regard fire as the most important thing in their lives.

2.Do not eat dog, kill dog and beat dog. This is forbidden by the Mao ethnic minority.

3. Do not say something about Pig and eat port with the Hui ethnic minority.


Because Ludian is a small county, there is no 5-star or 4-star hotels. If you need these 5-star and 4-star hotels, you can go to Zhaotong for 4-star hotels and to Kunming for 5-star hotels. Although the county is small, the hotels are clean and confortable. 


Ludian's transportation system is poor now. There is no airport and train station. So people need to take long-distance buses from Kunming and Zhaotong. And then do not take the unlicensed cab or taxi when you stay in Zhenxiong.

The best time to visit

March and May are the best seasons to visit Ludian. In March, you can enjoy the wonderful flowers. In May, you can pitch the cherry, enjoy the beautiful sceneries, have a taste of Jiaolin Chicken, and take an experience of Islamic culture.


You can change you money in Kunming and Zhaotong, for there is not any bank which could help you exchange money.
