Guizhou – Chishui 贵州 赤水

Location: Guizhou Province, Zunyi Prefecture, Chishui City  贵州省 遵义市 赤水市
How to get there: 3 hours by bus from Chongqing, and 3 1/2 hours from Zunyi City

Official website: in Chinese (also here), and in English
Chishui is a UNESCO World Heritage site

We visited 6 of the main scenic areas in late October 2019
(click on the links below to see photos and details about each scenic area):

Buddha Light Rock 佛光岩
Great Waterfall 大瀑布
Yanziyan (Swallow Rock) 燕子岩
Bamboo Sea 竹海
Suoluo scenic area 桫椤
Sidonggou scenic area 四洞沟

We visited two areas per day and stayed in Chishui for 3 full days in October 2019.

Most of the scenic areas are located around one hour by car from the hotel in Chishui (Sidongou is a bit closer, half an hour).

The best hotel in Chishui:
In English: Jinqian Jiahua International Hotel
In Chinese: 赤水金黔嘉华国际大酒店
The hotel is located a couple of kilometers outside Chishui city center, but the road from the city to the scenic areas passes by the hotel. Taxis are easy to find.

Warning: Most of the scenic areas have installed loudspeakers with motion detectors, as you get near a loudspeaker it starts making noise (pop music or “information”). It’s extremely annoying, treating a UNESCO World Heritage site like this shouldn’t be allowed.
