At the end of February while we were in Zhangjiajie we went to visit this park. There was a beautiful tour guide in costume to greet us and show us Tusi Castle, its history, exhibits and their customs. This was an interesting place to visit. For an AAAA National Tourist Attraction their washroom sure brings shame to the country. The... More

We arrived at this location after taking the cable car up to Tianzi Shan. We could not see the Hallelujah mountain because of the misty weather so we decided to visit the park. There's a guide who will explain all the exhibits in Chinese. Quite informative. After the exhibits, there's a show of knife throwing by an elderly man. After... More

It is great to know the lifestyle of these ethnic people - many similarities to our local culture and beliefs and traditions - especially the headgears, the weapons etc - many similarities to the malaysian malay/chinese culture, the "adat perpatih" or the peranakan lifestyles. We love the knife throwing show by the elderly man (please tip him generously), the local... More

Interesting history on this clan and their way of life. Something new to ponder into. Good experience to know how this clan lives and perform their daily ritual in life. Totally different from the West. This is what I called "Cultural Differences"

The park shows Tujia customs, special stone, root carving, precious relics and old Tujia folk performance, such as Maogusi Dance and Copper Bells Dance. Learned a lot of history.

We traveled with a tour group. The tour guide (CITS) forced everyone to visit Tujia Customs Park for 150 Yuan. We refused, but we was told no choice. The tour guide has Tujia minority background. We wasted more than one hour there. It's a tourist trap, no history. Just recently built for tourism profit. It wasted our time and money.... More
