If you are traveling in Asia anytime soon, may I suggest stopping in the mountainous village Kunming, South China? It has a beautiful scenery.

The catch is, you have to be under 4 feet 3 inches to live there.

Yeah, you read that right.

This town was founded by little people fleeing from exploitation and discrimination. The townspeople are self sufficient, complete with a fire brigade and police force. Spokesman Fu Tien said, "As small people we are used to being pushed around and exploited by big people. But here there aren't any big people and everything we do is for us."

The townspeople have made their town into a tourist attraction by erecting mushroom houses and dressing like fairy tale creatures.

...And they thought this would avoid discrimination?
