Beautiful village, but beware of the souvenir sellers hiking up the prices! Left Ping'an and missed out on a purchase? Don't worry, you will find most of the same souvenirs all over the area, esp in Guilin.

Stayed here for a night to appreciate this special place of traditional buildings clinging to the steep slopes. Wonderful to watch the locals going about their business especially in the evenings when the locals come out of the terraces and the donkeys with their loads make their way home. Especially quiet after the day trippers have left. Visit here quickly... More

Such friendly people and you felt it wasn't overly touristy. Go before any more lodgings open. Try and go shoulder seasons to avoid the crowds.

It seems this village's main dependance is only tourism which spoils it a bit. But the views from the village across the rice terraces are incredible.

It is a very scenic trail walking among the rice terraces from Ping'an to the Ancient Zhuang Village. It takes about 1.5 hours and easily done without a guide. Ancient Zhuang Village is the most traditional Zhuang minority village in Longsheng. Great for those who are interested in history and culture. The village boasts the oldest and the largest stilted... More

Stayed nearly a week, long walks, stunning views, peaceful place, the most charming people. We communicated through hand signs and noises, since most don't speak English nor we speak Mandarin. Deamed place, a little piece of heaven on earth.

This draws many Chinese tourists even though there are few overnight accomodations. It is a fabulous sight in the fall when the rice terraces are golden. It is quite a climb for the able-bodied but many chinese have themselves carried up in a "chaise-à-porteur" for a certain sum of money. Do be careful because it is not possible to carry... More

Just what any seasoned traveller looking for the real authentic experience is looking for. We found very comfortable accomodations and great food yet atmosphere you will not find anywhere else. This place is high up in the mountains, the air is fresh, the views breathtaking and the trails are very well kept. Great for hiking and photography buffs.
