Private Day Tour: Longji Rice Terraces and Long Hair Village
This is a typical itinerary for this productStop At:
Dragon's Backbone Rice Terraces, 80 kilometers from Guilin, Longsheng County 541701 China
Your private driver and personal guide will collect you from Guilin airport, Guilin railway station, or your hotel in Yangshuo or central Guilin, at 8:30am. From Guilin it's around two hours to Ping'an; from Yangshuo, it's a bit over an hour.
Your first stop is the 'Long Hair Village', Huangluo, where the Yao women grow their hair to spectacular lengths – some as long as 6.6 feet (2 meters)! Learn about Yao lifestyles here, before you journey up to Ping'an Village, set among the dazzling rice terraces of Longji, and still home to traditional wooden houses, where Zhuang and Yao minorities tend their fields as they have for centuries. (Entrance fees, which are around 100 RMB, are at your own expense.)
Enjoy a traditional lunch in Ping'an (own expense) before your guide leads you through the rice terraces, telling the story of how these stunning landscapes were created over many centuries as the locals carved fields out of the vertiginous slopes of Longji. Soak up the lush scenery and relaxing atmosphere as you capture timeless shots.
If you're returning to Guilin, you'll generally leave around 3:30pm (if you're staying in Yangshuo, you'll leave at 4:30pm), arriving back at your destination around 5:30pm.
