    Dragon's Backbone Rice Terraces
    Stop: 3 hours - Admission included
    Jinkeng Rice Terraces are just surrounding this small village. If you like hiking, you could choose to trek up to the top of the terraces along the trails in the fields. Cable car is also a good choice to make the trip more comfortable (optional on your expenses). The Rice Terraces are much prettier after the raining, fog or while it has not been harvested. The Chinese lunch will be served at local restaurant.

Well worth the trip.
Oct 2019
Did this hike from our local hotel and thoroughly enjoyed it. The rice fields are amazing and when you walk through them and start to think about the energy required to maintain them, then you really must appreciate and respect these farmers. The views are just spectacular. We took about 2.5 hrs to complete our walk and it was a real experience.

Good for the standard chinese touirism
The place is amazing, but why i must go where is a cableway,120 yuan not included, te see the terrace or step by step 45.minuts up is reeeeally difficolt...
the guide cant speak really english, like me aniway, but sheis not really a guide, but she came to sell the ticket cableway and the bamboo cicken, not included 25 yuan(not good)
After lunch we go in the teatre for a short spetacle really nice about the women of.long hair.
(Not so bad)
So you pay only the transport, but its.not so close to guilin and finally you will spend a good dau with them.

It is probably not economic to grow rice this way any longer, but the population has bound itself to continue since no rice growing on terraces no tourists = no income. It is a fantastic view once you have made your way to the viewpoints, but you need good legs. We had expected that our driver would just take us to a high point from where we could enjoy the view, but no. After two hours drive from Guilin he dropped us of at a terminal, from where we continued with busses another hour. From where we were dropped of we had to continue up a combination of a steep paths and more than a 1000 steps to reach the viewpoints. Half way up we stopped for lunch which was rich and had some interesting local specialities like smoked meat and rice prepared in bamboo.

Getting too touristy but still really enjoyed
Oct 2018 • Solo
I guess everywhere I go will be tourist infested. I do wish this one could have held on to its authenticity a little more rather than having so many little shopping spots with people trying to sell you their "unique" "handmade" items (which i'm not sure I believe were).

But it's also very nice to learn how rice is actually done -- way up here in the mountain. I enjoyed walking all around in the beautiful weather - up and down steps, out to other terraces, through the little enclave in the middle. I enjoyed seeing how very different peoples lives can be. I enjoyed that people still kept their clothing, their methods of doing some things.

Great day overall
Oct 2018 • Couples
Our guide picked us up on time despite all the traffic of National Holiday Week and explained to us early on that her English was not great (however still enough to communicate some history of the village and the region) but she was very friendly and helpful. We were told we would go to another village rather than Ping'an because of the crowds which we much preferred because it meant we could explore this one (however we did not see a long hair show).

Very enjoyable tour.....great day
Jul 2018
Our guide, Susan, was very accommodating and well informed. It was a hot day and we opted to take the cable car rather than walk the paved path /steps to the top viewing station. The meal in the restaurant was delicious as well. Beautiful countryside and rice terraces. A very unique experience.

Beautiful Scenery
Apr 2018 • Friends
This day tour involves lots of driving, but is worth it to see the beautiful landscape of the terrace fields/hills. I recommend riding the cablecar up the hill and walking back down. There is a clear path the entire way and takes 30-45 minutes which allows for a much closer look at the farming and some awesome photo opps along the way. Our tour also stopped at the long hair show which was interesting but also clearly a tourist trap, a group lunch which was only OK, and a tea farm. Our tour guide was also only OK, but luckily the scenery speaks for itself. Overall, the rice terraces are what will win you over and not necessarily this tour group or another..

Longji Terraces was a nice walk - but the bar at top of hill - superb
May 2018 • Friends
A pleasant surprise...that when we arrived at the top of the hill that overlooks the village and rice terraces..was one of the best little bars in the world...with a kick-butt view.

They served several types of coffees...and we just relaxed and took in the view for more than an hour. Also, we met a few travelers.

Don't miss it!

Long Drive but beautiful scenery
Apr 2018 • Family
Unfortunately we had only a few days in Guilin and could only spare one single day for this area.
As we where a family of four, we decided to hire a private car, driver and English speaking tour guide for the day.

Cost was a total of 2,900RMB, which included the car, driver, guide, entry fee to the park, minority long hair show & round trip cable car.

Drive was 2.5 hours which was ok as we had a mini van.

The minority long hair show was in my opinion a joke as it was not only poorly and careless performed, but so tacky and touristy its not funny. However, you get a few good pictures out.

The rice terraces are stunning and if you pick a clear day, its a bonus. We took the cable car up and walked down to see the villages a bit closer - took about 45min.

All together, we left again at 2pm so its a very long drive for only a few hours sightseeing.

I was told that the better option would be to stay a bit closer in Longsheng and avoid the long drive in one day.

Also, i was told to avoid this area on china's holiday, especially at the spring festival in October as the traffic is piled up to the mountain for miles and you could end up sitting in your car for hours.
