We loved our winter experience in ping an village. 9 of 10 folks were locals, donkeys with farmers transporting goods back and forth as much of the village has no car access. Ate at our excellent hotel (only can eat with hotel booking) and loved the fresh local dishes. Fog came in and out but there were times we had... More

First stop, you will come across Long Sheng Tourist Centre. From there, you will have to drive further up to get to Ping An Village. **Remember to take the cable car, the view is fantastic! Be prepared to walk up a distance to get to a beautiful vantage point, so wear good sneakers. Don't worry if you're not as strong,... More

Ping'an village is located 850 m and moving up the hill slope to the many homestays and guesthouses towards the ridge will be about 1000 m . Great opportunity to mingle and experience the Yao and Huang minority's hospitality and culture as we stay in their homes . It's an eye opener to savour their specialty bamboo rice with smoked...

Great authentic village with great vieuwpoints and walks all around. Nice ethnic sales(wo)men around town as well. Only problem: Chines style entree fee to pay at the parking lot at the village entree and the forced hire of Luggage-carriers while you can reach the east-side of the village and a nearer parking lot by car. Of course this is keenly... More

Ping'an was a wonderful place to visit. Wander up and down the Main Street trying to gues what it some of the stuff on sale actually is - was it once alive?? Stay in a traditional inn. If you can to get the full experience.

I went on an arranged tour in China in November 2015 where we stayed in Pingan for 3 nights. Pingan is a bit of a tourist attraction. You will find tourist shops everywhere and the village is full of tourist restaurant, bar and hotels wich in my opinion ruins the experience of beeing in a small Chinese village. I will... More

It's a hike up to this village, but totally worth it! We spent two days just hiking around the rice terraces and through the village. Two days was perfect as there isn't much in terms of night life that we found. If you're looking for an authentic experience in a charming village with stunning scenery you must come here!

WOW WOW WOW - If you have climbed the Great Wall then your ready to take the staircase to Paradise!... Welcoming people, beautiful rice fields and what a fantastic sunrise,sunset to see. Their history and culture is different to the main cities....isolated and beautiful....This place is so unique and was the highlight of our visit to China.

Loved the walk through the village to see the rice fields at the top. Lovely meal in a restaurant standing on stilts. Good to see the local people going about their business. Highly recommended.

WOW.. Ping'an is a place to definitely visit with a feeling of getting off the beaten track. Amazing views, authentic food and experiences and a unique opportunity to explore rural chinese culture. With 45 students, it was an amazing experience to share and a great way to test out the mandarin we had been learning. The locals loved it and... More
