After the rice fields we went to see a village of the Yao people. The Yao people are one of the 55 minority groups of China, mostly they are known for their long hair. The village was tied into our rice fields tour package and though not a highlight of my trip so far, it was fairly nice to visit. Though like most things in China, it was overly dramatized and touristy.
Getting a demonstration of the hair tying that the Yao ladies do. notice on the right there are two batches of hair. When the Yao ladies turn 18 they cut there hair and this is the first batch. The second is that they pick up all their hair that ever falls out and make the bunch from all that hair. pretty nuts
