There happened to be an important official in the Xiaohuang Dong Village on that day, so many people rushed there to welcome this important person. The ceremony was just over when we arrived, suddenly, it rained heavily, so the mothers were all running in the rain with their children.

Looked at the mother led their children in the street, I thought of the Dong customs, such as the blind date, wedding festival, or other similar activities, I guess most ideas of these activities are come from them.

Most of the usual Dong dresses are blue and simple look, but the dresses are much pretty and beautiful on holiday or festival.

Silver is beautiful with multi-pattern.

The men’s trousers are Dong cloth.
