In the morning, meet your professional English-speaking guide at your hotel lobby at around 7:30 and then you will head out for a 2.5 hours car ride to the Longsheng County. Approximately 62 miles (100 km) away from Guilin, the Longji terraced rice fields have a history of 600 years.
The shinning terraces lace the mountain slopes like silver ribbons in spring. While summer breezes ripple the surface of the paddies in great waves. In fall, layers of yellow crops make golden pagodas, and in winter white snow dragons are said to make the terraces their home. The fields have combined magnificence and elegance, and form some of the finest scenery in China. Whereas, the best months to visit are May, June, September and October.
Later in the day, visit Ping'an Zhuang Ethnic Village to appreciate distinctive architecture, garments and cultural scenes there. You will be transferred back to Guilin before the day ends.
