Not as quiet as it was but nice to stay

More buildings, more commercialized, less quiet, scenic is charming though. There is an expressway under building and will be open next year? Maybe about 60-90 minutes to Pingan... read more

This village services the trade at Longsheng Rice Terrace. This is where big tour groups and individual travellers congregate to have lunch, and to experience day to day living of local people. It is ironic noting that people live here to service the tourism trade whilst tourists and travellers come here to experience for themselves the simpler life of the... More

plenty of hotel and restaurant options. Great views from the entire village as it sits right in the terraced paddies. Is a trek to get to so if you are not fit, book one of the closer lodgings to the parking lot as it is as straight uphill walk. Also, no street lights so very dark at night, so bring... More

From the parking lot, its a decent walk up to the village, the last bit up steps, so travel light. A mixture of old farmer's houses and new little hotels. You run the gauntlet of gift sellers on the way up. It's where you set of for a walk round the extraordinary ancient Longshi rice growing terraces. If you're used... More

Visiting Ping An is a part of seeing the rice terraces as it is where the farmers live. For now, it is an interesting traditional village where people live the way they always did, except tourism may not be a bigger part of the economy than farming. Lots of money is being invested in building tourist infrastructure which is unfortunately... More

Nestling in the folds of the Longji Rice Terraces, Ping'An is a traditional farming village, just starting to cater to tourist groups. Most come on day trips from Guilin, but I strongly recommend staying a night or two to really experience this wonderful place. It's a 1km uphill, stepped walk from the road to the village, but local villagers will... More

Probably one of the main places to stay if visiting the rice terraces in this region. Nice traditional village but tourism has already arrived. Hotels are clean but simply and few restaurants available. Increasing amount of tourist tat for sale. Great view of the terraces from the village. It is a bit of a climb from the bus drop off...

Nestled among the rice terraces, this is one of the main tourist areas within the Dragons Backbone rice terraces. A few restaurants and places to stay as well as a few shops selling some basics and souvenirs. The walk up here is half of the fun and keeps a smile on your face for the duration as you take in...

This very interesting village high up in the Dragon Spine Rice Terraces is well worth the climb up the mountainside (though sedan chairs are available for hire). Very popular with both Western and Chinese tourists, this area is changing rapidly, so go now if you have the chance.

Surrounded by rice fields and only accessible on foot. It is a delight to explore. Chinese domestic tourists think so too. It is very commercial but also charming and exotic. A great place to stay for a few days.
