- The welcome ceremony
Though drinking is claimed as a "must" to get the entrance permit, you don't have to if you dislike it. For those who are good at drinking, make sure you are clear-headed enough to find your way back. Or else, a male tourist may find himself become one of the villager' son-in-law when he wakes up in the next morning. Congratulations if that's what you want.
This is a traditional Miao welcome ceremony to their honored guests, not unique in Langde, you may witness it in some other Miao villages.
