Cultural etiquette when visiting Fenghuang Water Village

The ethinic minority living in Fenghuang is Miao Zu. Even they are already used to having visitors from all over the world but it’s always good to respect the local cultural etiquette. Please pay attention to those:

  • Do not enter someone’s home with an open umbrella
  • Do not touch kid’s head
  • Do not step on the door sill of someone’s home
  • If you are staying at a local’s house, you shouldn’t sleep in the same room with a different gender
  • Do not get too close to married women especially if you are a man
  • Do not whistle in the villages (this is considered to summon spirits)
