Beautiful and a must see while in China!

A beautiful place to see! A must see when in China. The village is a great link to times gone by. Easy trails to walk around the rice fields.

We had a late afternoon flight out of Guilin and we were staying in Yangshuo so the hotel told us we should see the Longji Rice Terraces on the way to the airport. They arranged a private van for the five of us. This turned out to be great - because we were able to decide what we wanted to... More

View is great. But is it worth the time and effort? It's way too touristy if you ask me. I would rather spend the energy and resources off the beaten track. The energy and resources is about the same!

The rice terraces are visually stunning and I loved walking around them to the village. Only issue is that if doing the group from Yangshuo you are left with very little time there.

Terraces upon terraces. Labor intensive as with all things in this part of China. We saw water buffalos, many, many people working alone and spread out throughout the hillsides.

Visited this in march, which is not the best time. Still it was really beautiful. Went early in the morning around 8 am, it was a bit foggy with very mild rain...still it cleared up when we reached there.

Ok, I rated the whole area with 5 points. This location is just about the small pool there. Sure the view there is great and amazing but - still - it's a pool of water :)

Wonderful location; very peaceful, rural but also completely alien. The climate is a bit of a challenge for those unaccustomed to the tropics - high humidity and fairly hot. I'd love to do a walking holiday here and I'd also like someone to explain why on earth they wear clothes here.

Nice - even in March. Too bad about the stupid multi-language tourist propaganda information blaring through the rice fields all day to almost 7pm. To access these rice fields you have to park your car in the designated area then pay a local and foreign tourist entrance fee. Then you hike up. If staying overnight make sure you pack a... More
