Full description
Day 1

Start with a pick-up from your hotel in downtown Guilin. Then, you will be transferred to Longsheng by hotel shuttle bus. After a 3-hour drive, you will arrive at Jinkeng and start a 3-hour hiking tour escorted by hotel staff from Hotel Quanjinglou, a hotel located on the highest point of Longsheng Rice Terraces, and is the best available hotel in the area of Jinkeng.

This area is filled with hills known for its amazing rice terraces with a history going back more than 700 years. The best time to visit Longsheng Rice Terraces is during spring, when the rice paddies are watering for the planting season. Alternatively, October is another good time to visit during the harvest.
