It'll take a 2.5-hour car ride to Longsheng County, here is where the world-famous rice terraces lay.
It was said that the rice terrace was firstly developed in Qin and Han dynasties in Longsheng over 2,300 years ago.
In Tang and Song dynasties, it was extensively developed by the local people.
It reached its present scale during the Ming and Qing dynasties.
The body of work showcases how crafty and smart the local people were, shaping nature into a sustainable home.
The height of the rice terraces range between 300 to 1100 meters above the sea level.
The largest gradient reach is up to 50 degrees. The main sites are Ping’an Village, Longji Village and Jinkeng.
Today, your Longji rice terrace tour will focus on the Ping’an Village, where we'll enjoy its beautiful and baffling landscape.
The best time to visit the region is during the Spring and Autumn season.
In the Spring, you can expect to see the local farmer planting in the fields which are irrigated with water.
It is a photographer's dreamland and a moment highly sought by backpackers and awe-junkies. Along the way, your Longji rice terrace tour guide will take you to the local pearl and silk store as well, where you can shop for souvenirs.
From there we drive back to your hotel in Guilin, ending your 1-day Longji rice terrace tour.
