Hi All

This is the 3rd time I have visited Tuanjiezhen 团结镇 about 3/4 of an hour outside of Kunming. Love this hostel as I can camp. Such a beautiful peaceful place.
On this visit I went in search of Bai architecture. Scattered around the village are small Bai minority settlements which have either been abandoned totally or semi abandoned. These must have been thriving little hamlets only 20 years ago. Now the locals are leaving them behind as they become richer and have built large new houses. Some new houses have also incorporated the old house into the new. One cannot blame them as the old mudbrick houses much be damp and cold.

Enjoy the photos

JAH bless
