We stopped at Ping'An village, bcos according to local bus driver, its the only ideal place to stay. Charged us Y50 for 2 pax return bus tixs. Nonetheless, we covered the 2 scenic spots and decided to trek up to Tiantouzhai. This was in Dec, lull period, when harvest were over. We managed to get a 65yr old Yao tribe... More

We actually went there during last Chinese New Year,09/02/2016. The Longsheng and Longji rice terraces are also called Dragon's Backbone rice terraces as the hills look like dragon's back All the way you will see the rice terraces from different angles and on the narrow path you will probably meet locals,from whom some of Yao women. The spectacular rice terraces... More

One of the classic Chinese landscapes that do not disappoint in the least. We took a local bus here from guilin (a bit of hassle, but perfectly doable, better than doing an organized tour, I think). To save time we took the cable car up, and walked down. The views from the cable car also give mor or a birds... More

Rice terraces are well known but all recomend to visit them with some tour. I think no need to do so. I took taxi in Guilin to Ping´an village directly. Also hotelin Pingán was free and owner spoke some words English. Next day I went to Dazai Village (some 4 hours walk) and from Dazai by bus back to Guilin.... More

The rice terraces are a major attraction in this area near Guilin. It is about a two hour drive from the city to the terraces. The village that ascends through the terraces is very charming and rural. We visited in fall - so the terraces were golden. The color changes depending upon the season.

We went just after the rice harvest so missed the flowing fields of rice. This did not detract from the experience. There is always something to see in each season. The village to village hiking was not too strenuous and offered great views.

I gasped when the guide told us it was a 1.5 hour walk up the mountain and another 1.5 hour walk back down. But in truth, the sights scents and scenery were altogether enchanting and engaging, the time flew by. It was such a honor to bear witness to minority life of the Zhong nestled on the terraces of these... More

We visited the rice terraces by joining a day tour. The scenery on the drive to the rice terraces was spectacular. Winding up and down the mountain roads was most enjoyable. The climb to the top of the rice fields was very steep in places. The view was worth it even though the rice had been harvested. The lunch was... More

We all remember taking classes when we were young about the rice terraces in China . Until you stand on the top of the mountain and view the terraces below you have no concept of the effort it took to buildit but likewise what the farmers must now do to plant , harvest and maintain the terraces . The walk... More
