A wonderful remote village (even more remote the day we visited as a landslide had blocked the shorter route and so we had to make the longer trek up). Scenery to die for with the rice terraces surrounding you and the clouds below you. Everything you'd expect of a place modern china as missed out. Hopefully it will stay this... More

Great place if you want to see the real china. Heat is rough in August and thousands of steps to climb but worth every minute of the effort

We spent two days in the Dragon's Backbone Rice Terraces area walking from Dazhai to Ping'an via Tian Tou Zhai. This was the highlight of our trip to China. Peaceful, spectacularly beautiful, few people, warm and welcoming places to stay and eat. I you like nature, beauty, peace and culture, go there and enjoy, we wish we had more time... More

The rural villages in the area are scenic and worth a visit, but they are in the midst of change like so much else in China. There is often construction going on - new hotels, etc.

It is worth at least a day trip from Guilin.The road leading here is very winding but in good condition.Like other parts of China you have to pay an entrance fee of 100 Yuan to come here.

The village flanks the main trail up to the terraces. There are a number of restaurants and small shops as well as places to stay. Plenty of trinkets to buy, but it didn't feel overly commercial and the views of the rice terraces are well worth the steep stroll up through the village. Very nice people.

Have visited twice once for a day very rushed.Went back to stay the night in June 2013. Much better.Completely dark except for one neon sign. Able to watch the Firer Dragons glowing in the bushes in the dark.

Ping An is a lovely little village that reminds me of the phrase "the land that time forgot". It's quite remote and the villagers for the most part do not speak English. Life there seems to me to be much as it was 100 years ago. If you're headed up to Longsheng to see the rice terraces, spend some extra... More

Beautiful little village looking over the rice terraces. Would strongly recommend staying overnight for the best chances of getting a good view of the terraces. It rained on and off when we were here, but it wasn't too bad, and we were lucky enough that most of the time it was clear enough to have great views. There was one... More
