Beautiful town in grand landscape

A beautiful town. Visit it the next years before the highway is ready and tens of thousands of Chinese will flood the area

Ping'An is so picturesque and charming. It was the perfect base for exploring the Longsheng rice terraces. Book a stay at the Baike Hotel in Ping'An- it's just a short slope up from the parking lot. Staying at the foot of the mountain allows you to enjoy the walk up unencumbered by luggage or hurries. You will enjoy winding through... More

Prettiest and most expensive compared to other villages. More hotel and restaurant options. Overpriced drinks.

Beautiful little village in between the rice fields. Amazing people living there some 190 families with all the same family name. Only downside of the village is the overly pushy street/walkside traders and during Chinese holidays the masses of tourists which we managed well to pass with our 0400-0800 and 1600-2000 photography schedule.

We stayed in Ping'an village for two nights and it was a great base for hiking in the rice terraces. With hindsight we may have decided to spend one night in Ping'an and one night in Dazhai, but would only recommend doing that if you are prepared to carry your luggage on a hike. The people in the village are... More

I am in love with life in this village. I love that the roosters are always making their presence known. I love that you can awaken one morning to a pig being butchered right outside your door and another morning to the sounds of the horses beginning their daily trek of moving things from here to there. It is an... More

It has history, culture, natural beauty... but also modern hotels, variety of food and English-speaking locals! It's my second day here and I plan to spend 1-2 more days. There's so much to see around the village. Some of the best treks, views of terraces, other nearby villages... and even acceptable internet connection!

Very pretty views of ricefield terraces with poetic names such as "Seven Stars Accompanying Moon" and "Nine Dragons and Five Tigers". Compact area to admire the engineering feats since Ming Dynasty.

beautiful mountain view of rice terraces and colorful Zhuang village life. Worth one night stay and half day of hiking around. But, too far away from any other attractions. Eventually you spend 2 days just to enjoy half day there.

This village is great and has easy access points for walking to viewing points to see the rice terraces. We were lucky enough to go to this village when there was a festival and see all the locals performing. We also saw spectacular fireworks. An unforgettable experience in ping'an village which I would higy recommend to fellow travellers.
