Your experience


  • Walk through the impressive rice terraces and experience the distinctive character of the local farmers
  • Meet different peoples like the Zhuang and the Yao


In the northwest of Guilin, you will first visit the villages of the Zhuang and Yao, two of China's over one hundred ethnic minorities. Your guide will introduce you to the culture and traditions of the Zhuang and Yao and you will have the opportunity to learn about their unique and colourful dress style, listen to their melodic folk music and watch their playful dances. You can also watch the women weaving and knitting. Afterwards enjoy a traditional Chinese meal before you drive to your next stop

When you reach the Longji rice terraces, you will climb to their summit at 880 meters. After a half-hour hike you will be able to enjoy the fantastic panorama of this extraordinary agricultural achievement. During the Yuan Dynasty, numerous minorities fled to these mountains because they were persecuted by the government. They mainly came from an agricultural society and so they built the rice terraces so that they could continue to grow rice on this side of the mountains
From the top, the rice terraces resemble the backbone of a dragon that twists and turns in the distance. The terraces divide the mountain into many parts. In spring, the individual levels shine in the sunlight, lush layers of golden rice blossom in autumn and numerous layers of snow cover the terraces in winter
