The view here is stunning and magnificent!!! I had stayed here for 3 nights and I love it very much!! The hiking from parking lot to the village takes about 40 minutes and if you have big luggage, you can ask the local ppl to help you carry it which costs around 40-50rmb. I stayed at the hostel between scenic... More

I spent two nights here and it was so beautiful. The hike is relatively easy, although the path was sometimes confusing and difficult to follow to the view points or to other villages. The bus ride from Guilin was about 3 hours. Once we got into the mountains about one hour or more of that was curving roads. If you... More

Hauntingly beautiful rice fields fed by mountain springs. You can walk around miles of fields and take in 600yrs of human effort. Breathtaking

We stayed in Tiantou village for two nights to enjoy the rice terraces. Walking from the Dazhai parking lot, it takes about 40 minutes to reach Tiantou village, which is also close to a few view points. Definitely stay at least two nights to really enjoy the scenery. The scenic points are mostly well signed (even in English!) and relatively... More

I went in the summer. All the terraces were very green and the magnitude of it all created a really beautiful sight. I would recommend having a better plan than I did when you go. I underestimated the size of the rice terraces. The site is lacking any quality maps and the view points can be hours of hiking apart.... More

Our guide and driver drove us to these rice terraces from Guilin. It was a warm and humid, but pleasant, day in April. After so many days of being in crowded Chinese cities, it was great to drive into the countryside and see the more rural Chinese lifestyle. We walked the paths up the hillside and through the rice terraces.... More

Scenery is surreal and breathtaking. Went to Dazhai because we read it had less tourists. Not sure if that is true because we were unable to go to Ping'An. There were people on the paths but not a lot. Busiest area is the Scenic spot #3- the cable car takes you up there or you can hike it. We recommend... More

My son and I travelled here in November 2015. We stayed in the Ping An village overnight and then toured the rice terraces. There are no roads to the village so lady porters (in their 70s and 80s they leave you behind on the climb !) take your bags up to the wooden hotel just below the terraces. The rice... More

This is a must visit. We had the best time, the views are incredible and the experience of being in the rice terraces and seeing all the fields is amazing. We enjoyed walking in the village and just enjoying the view. We were also very lucky as we were able to spend time with the locals! We would recommend this... More

The scenery is indeed spectacular. We visited the rice terraces in the start of June, where most of the terraces are filled with water, and local farmers start to plant the fields. The terraces are a real wonder, and the construction is almost unbelievable. In Longsheng there are two main points to view the terraces: Those of Ping'an are the... More
