The southwestern province of Guizhou has for the first time this year earned a place in the New York Times list of top "52 places to go" around the world for its "unhurried pace" and "authentic feel". Guizhou, the least accessible region in China, was praised as having "authentic Chinese hill tribes without mass tourism — yet".
