Presentation of the rice fields of Ping’an and Longsheng
Located 103 km from Guilin city, the small village of Ping’An is part of the Longsheng Autonomous District, where are the villages of 4 ethnic Chinese minorities. The Ping’an village is attached to the Zhuang ethnic group which has the distinction of building only wooden buildings.
Built on the hillside, on the central ridge of the dragon’s spine, Ping’An is an excellent base for discovering the rice terraces that cover the surrounding mountains. These rice fields are often considered some of the most beautiful in all of China. And for good reason, each season offers a different landscape of these fields on the hillside, such as stairs.
From Ping’an Village, two sites offer a magnificent view of the rice terraces below and the wooden houses.
When to visit Ping’an – Longsheng?
The best seasons to admire the beautiful rice fields are the spring or autumn when Zhuang farmers work in the rice fields.
In the spring, Longsheng flooded rice fields reflect the sun’s bursts like gems. In autumn, the fields are flooded with the changing ocher colors of autumn because of the scattered trees here and there.
