Full description
On this full-day tour you’ll head out from either Guilin or Yangshuo to northeastern Guangxi province to the Longji rice terraces. This area, located around 80 kilometers from Guilin, was first developed in the late 13th century. Centuries of meticulous care by the Zhuang and Yao people have produced these beautfiul terraces that draw visitors from around the world. Longsheng county is home to a variety of ethnic minorities, such as the Miao, Dong, and Zhuang people. It is characterized by rustic folk customs and folklore, as well as colorful costumes. You’ll be met in the morning at your hotel and taken on a drive to the Longji rice terraces. First you’ll visit Ping’an village, and then continue on to the rice terraces. At the end of the afternoon you’ll be transferred back to your hotel.

very nice day tour

the driver was very nice and spoke english well. Arrived at the rice terraces, a "hike" of approx. 30-40 minutes would be planned (unfortunately, this is nowhere to be found). if you cannot cope with this, you can tell the driver and you can drive up in a car for a small fee. we were still eating in a small local restaurant and on the way home in a tea plantation, which is also highly recommended.

An amazing experience and a must-see

On our tour through the ricefields we saw two different segments of the fields, both as beautiful as one expects. Despite the rainy day, Andy, our guide, managed to keep the tour entertaining. We had enough time to see the area and let it’s beauty sink in. I definitely keep this tour recommended. Besides the lovely area, Andy arranged several things for us and adapted the schedule to our preferences, whithout trouble.
