Day 1: Kunming -Yuanyang
Drive from Kunming to Jianshui. We will spend the afternoon visiting some sites around town. First see Confucius Temple, a construction aged over 700 years, whose size ranks the biggest in province and the second of country, then Wan Yao Village, the cradle of famous Jianshui Purple Pottery, we will see how workers are making clay into elegant jars, vases or other nice vessels in different shapes. Finally we stroll in Zhu Family Garden, a private residence built in late Qing Dynasty 100 years ago, covering an area of 20,000 square meters and with labyrinthian arrangements of yards, pathways and elaborately-furnished rooms. Stay in Jianshui for night.
Day 2:Jianshui -Yuanyang
In the morning, see the Chaoyang Gateway Arch built in 1389,  it's the east gate tower (called also The Yinghui Gate) of former city wall surrounding Jianshui, now serving as a landmark of the city. Do a relaxing walk around the old part of town, see 600-year ancient well that is still feeding people, visit local tofu workshop to discover how this popular food is processed, and find out how local life is going on. Later drive to Yuanyang, a small mountainous county of Hani and Yi people, around which there are grand views of thousands of rice terraces. We drive directly to Lao Hu Zui first to catch the view of sunset, if weather's ideal, countless terraces filled with water would reflect rosy light to give wonderful view. Overnight in Yuanyang.
Day 3: Yuanyang - Jianshui
First see the daily market in town (if there happens to be better countryside market, we will go and see it instead), Yuanyang is a quite ethnic area, inhabited by Hani, Yi, Dai, Miao and other minorities, market is the best site to meet them and find out the facts of their authentic lives. After we drive to several spots to see more rice terraces, Duo Yi Shu Area, Ba Da Area, Qing Kou Area, etc., different spots would display rice terraces from different angles. It took ancestors of Hani people more than 1200 years to assart thousands of terraces on sidehills, during their arduous work through generations for food, undesignedly they created the most inspiring scene in southern Yunnan. In the afternoon drive back to Jianshui. Overnight in Jianshui.
Day 4:Jianshui -Kunming
Leave Jianshui to visit Tuan Shan, an age-old village enlisted amongst the 100 Protected Memorial Buildings of the World by WMF in 2005, for its well-maintained style and features of 19th. Century, here numerous ancient civilian dwelling houses still remain intact and folk traditions are still performed in its original way. Later we drive back to Kunming, en route drop in Mongolian village near Tonghai, the only place in province where Mongolian people live, villagers are descendants of soldiers who came from north on expedition to Yunnan 700 years ago, we will try to  find out how their life is changed after getting off horseback. Tour ends upon arrival in Kunming.
