Yunnan - China's most beautiful province


Learning Bai

Learning Bai
Bai 白族话 is the language spoken by the Bai people 白族 in the Dali area. While Chinese has become the lingua franca, Bai is still actively spoken by many, particularly older people, but it does not have a native written form and comes in many dialects. Here we list the available resources for learning this difficult language.



The Yi of the Eastern Mountains in Weishan County retain Daoist rituals dating back generations.
