Ping'an Village, Longsheng County

4.4
#1 of 29 in Shopping in Guangxi
Civic Center Landmark
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.

  • The village, though, still reflects the way of life of the residents. It is possible to see ladies working in the rice field, horses carrying construction material, bamboo as a way of building, residents gathered at night. The food is tasty and very fresh vegetables. The night we ate a good pizza in a restaurant the owner speaks English and is extremely nice. This restaurant has a warning of western food in front. We did the tour of the terrace and experience a hot drink that comes from a dry fruit of the region with ginger. A delight! There is also possible to make purchases. Worth is a night to sleep. To sleep recommend going with only a backpack because the village is on a mountain and cars do not enter.
