this village literally hang on the mountain, you walk through houses, barns to climb to rice terraces, where the view, on summer is bright and colourful, on winter subtle pale. I feel so happy being there on 3 different seasons, enjoyed all it colors and shades

Arrived at the main gate of the terraces with some friends and then took a bus up to Ping An. Grand prix bus driver, very exciting! The village is the most touristy in the area as it is the one reached by bus. Still full of interest with shops and people going about their daily life and jobs. 100 yuan... More

Don't miss this place! Absolutely breathtaking views. It was about a 2 hour drive from Guilin, but the drive is through the countryside and you get to see lots of local farmers out and about. After stopping at the Entrance Building, the drive to the entrance of Ping'an another 30-45 minutes and is steep and up and around a lot... More

Built on steep slopes, with no vehicles. Entrance 100 yuan each. Women half my size carry suitcases on top of baskets on their backs. Cost 40 yuan per case each way so need to factor in cost, but foolish not to take the service as lugging a case up narrow steps is not recommended. A few shops selling mainly souvenirs... More

The Village is high up on mountain that you can only walk to so only take a backpack. Wonderful base for treks through rice fields

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.
