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.


Because Yiliang 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. 


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