Danzhai (Chinese: 丹寨; pinyin: Dānzhài) is a county in the southeast of Guizhou province, China. It is under the administration of the Qiandongnan Miao and Dong Autonomous Prefecture.

Danzhai is one of China’s most ethnically diverse regions, located in the province of Guizhou in Southwestern China. With a population of approximately 172,000, it sits administratively under the Qiandongnan Miao and Dong Autonomous Prefecture. The region is renowned for its unique geographic, cultural and ethnic diversity, including the distinctive rice terraces, and Miao ethnic crafts and traditions.

Danzhai was once known as one of the poorest regions in China.

In 2014 the Wanda Group designated it as the site for its ‘Enterprise Sponsored County-wide Comprehensive Poverty Alleviation’ programme. Wanda Group has committed to invest RMB300 million to a Danzhai vocational school, RMB500 million for a Danzhai poverty alleviation fund, and RMB700 million for a Danzhai Wanda Village, which includes a culturally sensitive hotel and town district built in the distinctive Miao architectural tradition.

Wanda Group's total investments total 1.5 billion RMB and the tourism village is expected to provide up to an additional 3,000 jobs.[1]
