As an expat in China, I try to take advantage of traveling on the weekends. However, this often means traveling at the same time as the millions of other people in this country which can often be a nightmare. It has become increasingly difficult to find places to travel that are untouched by Chinese tourists and for a weekend trip... More

We(Me and My GF) were staying in the Guilin town center and wanted to take the bus to Longsheng. It turned out that the bus service from Guilin town center has stopped and we have to take a bus to another city to get on the bus to Longsheng. There were many taxi drivers offer to take you to Longsheng.... More

Went on a day tour from Guilin to the Longsheng Rice Terraces. It took about 2 and a half hours to reach it, mainly because of the windy road you travel into the mountains after switching to a smaller bus. Took a cable car up the mountain and a perfect day and saw great views. Then we took the path... More

We travelled as a family of 3 (2 adults and a 7 years old girl). We hired a driver in Guilin to drop us at the Dazhi car park, paid 400 RMB to him including park tickets for this which was too much but more comfortable than bus. From Dazhi we hiked up to the Tiantou village, we paid a... More

We got a DIY trip to the rice field organized by our hostel in Guilin. We had 5 hours to hike within the fields and managed to reach 2 out 3 scenic highlights around Dazhai village. If you want to explore it all, especially the other villages, it is probably worth to spend one night in the area. Very few... More

Ping’An Village is about 16km to the northeast of the Longji Rice Terrace Ticketing Office ( also the Bus Station and Parking Lot for Longji). Dazhai Village and... More

I had a great walk in the dragon's backbone rice terraces. This is a must do when you're in the neighbourhood. The trip there and back to Guilin are quite long, but it is worth the trip.
