For city dwellers a village like Pingan is great joyful. There are many chickens about. And farm homes on mountain. It's for many tourists to visit with plenty of cafe, hotel, and such. There are long hair ladies who will gladly demonstrate how beautiful their hair is for small tip. Walk around the village for taste of country mountain life.... More

We didn't know what to expect when we got to Ping'an Village, but wow..... I LOVE THIS PLACE. We got our workout on, 2 adults and 2 children (10 and 8)... slept like babies after this. The scenery is simply unbelievable. The village has so many smiling faces as you walk by... try the peanut or walnut brittle-like delicacy... absolutely... More

Absolutely beautiful. When you think of pictures of rice paddies clinging to the side of a mountain, this is what you're thinking of. The village is also very picturesque. You can see your tourist dollars at work though. While we were there, some "villagers" were welding up the steel reinforcements for another "rustic" building. Though rice fields in the area... More

This village seems ancient - it's hard to believe they can sustain a modern lifestyle within this little village. But it seems they do! It was really worth seeing.

Bring your good walking shoes, because you will be walking up the mountain (feels like twenty floors), very narrow passage ways with lots of people walking up and down, beautiful views for awesome pictures and cozy hotels.

This small town is one of the most mentioned places to visit the "original" rice terraces in china. First: Yes, you will see the terraces and the view is nice - if you are on the right place. But: Hotels, Restaurants and other Shops are exploding. If your plan is to find a quiet place to visit the terraces: Forget... More
