Combined show and eating events are numerous and popular all over China. The Dish-Serving-Dances in Yunnan's Nanjian Yi Autonomous County is a bit different though. Dancing while serving their guests dishes, is an important etiquette of the local Yi people.

Yunnan is famous for its richness in ethnic cultures and nearly every minority group in Yunnan celebrates its own unique festivals. Some events are famous all over the country and even abroad, others are still insiders' tips. But all are good reasons to visit Yunnan!

The Hualian jie, how it is called in Chinese, takes place every year in Wenshan Miao and Yi Autonomous Prefecture, some 300 km south east of Kunming. It is an over 1000 year old tradition of the local Yi minority and a good option to get a face lift!

All year round is BBQ time in Kunming. So also we take the opportunity every once in a while to close our office, get together with our colleagues, families, friends, drivers and tour guides and heat the grill. Besides delicious food, also games were on the agenda.

Yunnan is famous for its beautiful scenery and pleasant climate - perfect for holiday and relaxation. But it's also getting famous for something completely different. Have you ever heard of 100k ultra marathons at elevations of over 3800 meters and other unique running events?

The Torch Festival is one of the most important holidays of the Yi people in southwest China and is also celebrated by other ethnic groups of the region. It's celebrated on the 24th or 25th day of the 6th month of the lunar calendar, which usually corresponds to July or August.

When you are visiting China, you should avoid travelling during the major public holidays. Many Chinese people use the holidays around Spring Festival, First of May and especially the Golden Week to travel through the country. Stay calm. And maybe even at home.
