TOUR ITINERARY

Tour code:
GWA-GL-BUS3
Step 1 Your guide and driver will pick you up from your hotel by 7:30am, and we will begin the drive to the Longsheng County in order to see that Longsheng Rice Terraces (2 hr of driving).

Step 2

The Longsheng Terraced fields (also known as the Devil’s Backbone), were first built in the Yuan dynasty (1279-1368 AD) and completed in the Qing dynasty (1644-1911 AD) by the Zhuang people. The terraced fields are built along the slope winding from the riverside up to the mountaintop, with the highest place of an elevation of 885m and the lowest 380m. Longsheng town is situated in a densely forested area of over 2400 square kilometers and has a population of only 160,000 people, with many of them from the Miao, Dong, and Zhuang ethnic minorities. It is surrounded by mountains in four sides and lies 100 kilometers north of Guilin, as well as in the joint area of Heping River and Sang River. Built on the mountain slopes, the town boasts rows of tall buildings separated by banyan trees. (2 hr of sightseeing).
 

Step 3

Following the rice terraces we’ll drive to the Ping’an Minority Village (平安寨). First built during the end of the Ming Dynasty and the beginning of the Qing Dynasty, Ping'an has long been the key stockaded village for sightseeing in the Longji scenic area. This spot has become a highlight among tourists wishing to experience the culture and folk customs of the Zhuang ethnic group. The adorable village is stacked up in layers up the hillside and in the canyons. The whole village is not too big - maybe a few hundred people. Stone paths and staircases twist in and out of buildings. The Zhuang people still live an ancient and simple life. Just being here you will get a real sense for the pace of village life. You can just hang around the village, watching the villagers in their daily tasks - washing vegetables, tending animals, carving wood, building houses, or blowtorching shanks of meat. Kids play up and down the paths, or in the basketball court. Ducks, chickens, dogs, cats, and even horses wander around and are friendly as well. (1 hr)
