Dragon's Backbone Rice Terraces
After a two-hour drive we will reach the entrance for the Longji Terraces where you need purchase entrance tickets for the rice terraces in Ping'an Village and then also need about a 40-minute drive. This village has the most famous and beautiful rice terraces in Longji.
The Dragon's Backbone Rice Terraces is a splendid agricultural spectacle with a history of more than 650 years. The most eye-catching part of the terrace cluster is the Ping'an Village Rice Terrace, which was the earliest one discovered by tourists and photographers. Numerous narrow rice fields dug along the hill slopes form terraces connected by winding flagstone trails. There are viewing platforms for visitors to view the entire terrace fields built tier upon tier. While you are there you can also experience the minority Zhuang people's traditional way of life. It is quite interesting to help them in the fields, try on their bright-colored ethnical costumes, and visit their unique stilted houses.

Must do when in Guilin

2 hour drive from Guilin and Colin was a great guide and took us there safely. We then walked the rice terraces for 2 hours on our own. Really scenic and the cultural villages (there is plenty of ethnic minorities in the region) with its little shops, restaurants and friendly people were a highlight of our trip. Definitely come to Longji when you visit Guilin!
Wonderful trip to Longji Rice Terraces

We had a wonderful day with Colin, our English speaking guide. He picked us up as planned and gave us lots of information as we past different areas and made a stop at a little tea plantation on our way to the rice terraces. We then got a shuttle to the top of the terraces and made our way down and visited the little village and see the Yao minority ladies with their long hair. We headed back and was happy the be back after a good, long and hot day. Thank you for arranging an amazing trip Andy
Andy is a great tour guide!

Andy was a wonderful tour guide. He safely drove us from Yangshuo up to the Longji Terraces. He was knowledgeable and answered all of our various questions. He was flexible with the schedule depending on our preference, which made the trip flow smoothly. His professionalism and kind personality are second to none. Hope to come back to see more of beautiful Guilin and Yangshuo. Thanks Andy!
