Guiyang is the capital of Guizhou Province, located in the middle of Guizhou, surrounded by mountains, is a veritable mountain city. For most travelers, Guiyang is often just a transit station during the journey. Although few people know her seriously, there are still scenic spots such as Qianling Mountain and Qingyan Ancient Town that are worth visiting, and there are night markets that can fill your mouth.

Guiyang in midsummer is an excellent place to avoid summer. The climate here is pleasant, and there are few high temperatures above 30 ℃ in the hottest period. The perfect combination of the green forest and the city not only makes the whole city green, but also creates a natural oxygen bar. Therefore, Guiyang officials also hit the city slogan "refreshing Guiyang".

However, "refreshing" shows not only the coolness of summer, but also the delicacy of Guiyang cuisine. Breakfast that is not the same for a week, street snacks such as siwawa(丝娃娃), love bean curd(恋爱豆腐果), potato poop(洋芋粑粑), night market delicacies such as hot water(清水烫), barbecue meat and grilled fish, and specialties such as Fish in Sour Soup(酸汤鱼) and spicy chicken(辣子鸡). I'm afraid you'll have to stay for a while if you want to try them all.

In addition to green mountains and beautiful rivers and delicious food, comfort is another business card of Guiyang. The pace of life here is slow, without the tension and busyness of the metropolis, the elderly like to play cards by the side of the park, and workers can often go to the night market to eat enthusiastically. This lazy magnanimity and tolerance may be another gesture of the city.
