Built in the 1920's and spanning an area of 3,066 square meters, Yan's Compoud of Bai Minority in Xizhou offers classic and artistic representations of the traditional dwellings of the Bai people. Named after the Yan Family, once the largest family in Xizhou, the compound is comprised of four different divisions that showcase the different styles and designs of the ethnic community throughout the years. While some areas boast of age old architectural styles of Dali origin, you will also notice more modern designs brought about by Western influence. Besides exquisite Bai architecture, you will also witness Sandoacha - a traditional regional tea ceremony that uses three unique tea flavors that act as a metaphor for the ups and downs of everyday life. As an addition to the unique cultural experience, you can also catch some traditional folk song and dance performances during your visit.
