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.

We spent a couple of days here at Longji One Hotel. Our guide, Jack Zhou, was excellent. It is only about an hour from Guilin airport. You can explore the village and wander through the beautiful rice terraces. It's really beautiful.

It was neat to walk around the village and see how the people live, shop, work in the fields, go to school, etc. Some shopping also available.

Wonderful village to spend a day and night. Beautiful views of the mountain side rice paddies. However, I have one big, big caution. The only way to get to this village is by a two hour hike up the mountain, on a rocky path. OK if you are physical fit. However, if you have knee, hip, or heart problems, do... More

Travelling during national holiday within China is asking for crowds and overpriced transportation and acommodation. Ping'An, however, is glorious this time of the year and worth it. The rice terraces are ripe and golden, so you'll get some of the best views of the area; days are warm with cooler evenings. You can feel Autumn wanting to settle in. The... More

The village of Ping'an is not so large, yet they have got a nice restaurant / pub with 4 belgian beers (Duvel, Maredsous, Vedett, Liefmans). They serve them cold and with the proper glass. Since it is importbeer you will have to count 4 - 6 euro. Food there is also very good, we had sizzling beef and some other... More

The people are friendly the setting stunning and the prices in the craft shops keen. Would recommend the bone combs and the lovely local red stone (which really is quite famous we saw items at many times the price in Hong Kong) I regret not getting a Chinese ink drawing of the terraces . Nice village steep paths ( quite... More
