Visitors can either depart from/return to Guilin, Yangshuo or even stay at the Longji Rice Terraces at the conclusion of the tour.
This is a full day tour, usually from 9:00 am - 5:00 pm but times are flexible depending upon each client's preferences and requirements.
Meet your tour guide in the morning and depart to the Rice Terraces, which takes approximately 2 to 2.5 hours from Guilin or 3.5 hours from Yangshuo. Upon arrival, you will be transferred to the Longji Zhuang Ethnic Minority Village, which is a quieter village located a short walk from the busier Ping’an Vilage. During your time at the village, experience firsthand local’s daily lives and see the traditional architecture featured on both the older and newer buildings throughout the village.
For lunch, our client’s are warmly invited into a local family’s traditional house for a more unique experience. The meal consists of a ‘bamboo chicken’ dish, which is a famous Zhuang Ethnic Minority dish and a variety of different vegetable and meat dishes. Custom as well as vegetarian meals can be catered for and all food is cooked in a registered kitchen to ensure hygiene and food standards.
Following lunch, walk from the Longji Zhuang Village to Ping’an Village along a quieter path offering views overlooking the terraces and usually, very few other people! This walk usually takes between 45 minutes to 1 hour and is on a winding uphill path, although not very steep.
After arriving at Ping’an Village, walk to the different scenic lookouts and further explore the Longji Rice Terraces, depending upon your preferences. The tour will conclude upon returning to Guilin, Yangshuo or even staying overnight at the rice terraces!
