Scenes near Guiyang

8. Site of The Zunyi Meeting

Zunyi, 170 km north of Guiyang, was the site of a pivotal meeting in 1935 during the Communist Party famous Long March. It was here that Mao Zedong, advocating a Peasant-led rather than a urban-based revolution, first came to power. The conference took place in an attractive European-style house on Ziyin Lu which can be visited, as can a 19th-century French Catholic church which has been converted into a museum commemorating the Long March.
