Be transported into a rural setting unlike any other. On this guided tour, spend a full-day at the Dragon’s Backbone rice terraces (Longji rice terraces) and see how ancient farmers transformed hillsides into a farming masterpiece.

Named for the irrigated hillsides resembling the scaly back of a dragon, the terraces showcase the majesty of nature and the wisdom of ancient people. It also perfectly demonstrates the unique cultural experience of the area's local minority population and their genuine folk life.

Your tour will start as your guide picks you up from your Guilin downtown hotel at around 7 - 8 am, based on your hotel location. Drive to Longsheng County (approximately 2 - 3 hours’ drive) and reach the Dragon's Backbone Rice Terraces — the culmination of both the profound wisdom and strenuous labor of the Zhuang people.

Hike up the hill to the best viewpoint and take amazing pictures. Depending on the season, the terraces change their appearance, yet the natural beauty of the place persists year round. It's the most amazing terrace in China.

Later enjoy a lunch at a local farmer restaurant. Continue to explore Ping’an village and get a glimpse of genuine folk life and culture of the locals, mostly consisting of a minority population. Experience firsthand the melodious folk music, the unique and colorful clothing, the weaving and embroidery traditions and the playful folk dances of the area.

As you immerse yourself in the dreamy, tranquil atmosphere, you will forget the stress and worries of urban life.

After a full day of sightseeing, you will be transferred back and dropped off at your hotel.
