Ping'an Village, Longsheng County

4.3
#1 of 30 in Shopping in Guangxi
Ping'an Village draws visitors to view the marvel of its rice terraces descending steeply from an altitude of 1,100 (3,600 ft) down to 300 m (984 ft). First cultivated between 1271 and 1368, during the Yuan Dynasty, the rice terraces today support around 50 families, comprising of mainly Zhuang people and some Yao people. As you wander through the alleyways, you will come across different viewing points offering impressive vistas of the terrace-lined valley spilling out below. Make sure you save time to sample some local delicacies during your visit, such as bamboo rice. The village remains inaccessible by car--it's roughly a 20-minute uphill walk from the main parking spot.

  • That said, this place is just sublime! He must earn it because there are a few (and market markets :-)), cars to stop on the parking downstairs, but climbing is worth a visit. The path / staircase winds inside houses, old or new, to get everything up on a terrace overlooking the rice paddies (Longji Terraces) where the view is simply sublime. It wasn't the first place on our journey in the Ghizhou where we were at the top of rice terraces, but then, if you're not overwhelmed by the place, then it is that China and the superb Ghizhou are not meant for you! We spent the night in a typical small hotel in the village, immersed in local life and a dinner worthy of an old Inn. "Only"disappointment", Yao, it is possible to rub (Yao = Chinese minority of the place) but this can taint the memory that we left this place, we left early the next morning for a downhill a bit sporty and bold" at the torch", having a long way to go to Yangshuo.

  • We ran pin a hiking trail to the village of Longsheng along the rice fields and rice terraces (1 hour). All quite impressive. The village of PIN on was once a Godforsaken village of mountain farmers on a steep slope of a Chinese minority. Now's a fruition over nest, where just about half of its houses are under construction by its increasing popularity ("secret"). It is still interesting, because one suspects still its originality in some places and can understand how people here lived before it was overrun by the avalanche of tourism.
