Beautiful, fascinating village

Very authentic, rural village. Visit soon, before it becomes an international destination site, overrun by tourists

We recently stayed in Ping'an Village for three nights, hiking in the Rice Terraces and enjoying the distinctive cuisine of of the area. The terraces were stunningly beautiful, we saw not only rice but many other crops interspersed (such as the longji hot pepper which is featured heavily in the cuisine). Our first meal consisted of the famous bamboo rice... More

The trip from the parking lot up to the village is a major part of the experience. Don't under-estimate the climb. If you have luggage with, I would advice the carriers which offer their services. You won't regret 😃 The views up the hills are breath-taking, probably in any season or weather. We had some sun and some rain. You... More

It's a remarkable experience to walk in an ancient village. Of course there is a lot of activities to upgrade it. But for now it gives a feeling of authenticity. Everytime when you walk around there is a different beautiful view

This village is up in the mountains surrounded by beautiful rice terraces. No cars can reach so its a 20 minute walk from the car park at the bottom of the mountain to the village. There are lady porters available to carry your bags (well worth a few Yuan) and I guarantee that even though they are 70+ years of... More

We loved our stay here and cant wait to be back. Enjoyed the bamboo rice and the noodles. We recommend this place to anyone, we did have a tour guide through Yangshuo Insider which are glad about it. We stayed at Star-wish Resort which we loved too.

This is the lower village on the Longsheng Rice Terraces. You can get there with a tour bus, or public bus, from Guilin. Most tours go here. We had some of the best food in this village! You can get amazing views of the century old rice terraces from this village, but if you really want to experience life on... More

The village itself has a lot of building going on and is a maze of alleyways and stairs so it is easy to get turned around. We happened to accidentally stumble across the annual rice planting festival that Ping'an holds every year. It was really incredible. They demonstrated traditional methods of plowing which was quite interesting to see. (We found... More

Car free village, catering for the rice farming and tourist trade. Basic, with limited facilities. Did encounter a dog skinning which was as we understood not uncommon but not a very pleasent sight.
