The DVD demonstrates the nature, culture, resources, and economy of the two amazing western provinces in China.

Yunnan, located in the southwest plateau area of China, means “south of the colorful clouds.” The province’s climate ranges from that in the frigid zone, temperate zone, subtropical zone to tropical zone. As a result, Yunnan has rich zoological and botanical resources. High mountains, valleys, snow-capped peaks, glaciers and plateau meadow contribute to Yunnan’s fast economic development. “The Southern Silk Road” , or actually ancient caravan-trails, wound its way across the province to Southeast Asia and South Asia in ancient China, becoming a major international trade route at the time.

Guizhou is located in the mountainous plateau. Its relatively secluded geography makes it possible for the primitive cultures of various ethnic groups to remain intact. So, a dazzling array of ethnic cultures and customs is presented about the province.
