I went there again in late Dec. 2017 on a tour. Initially I did not have any expectation as the golden rice fields would normally appear in late Sept./ early Oct. as reported previously. However the local government had worked with the local Zhuang tribe...More

It was 2.5 hours drive from guilin. We took a day trip. It would be nice to stay a night there. The mountains were so amazingly beautiful. The villages are located by the rice terraces which took ages to develop. They plant their crop carefully....More

It was a long trip from Guilin to here (over two hours) but well worthwhile. We visited the Dazhai locations and took the option of a cable car ride up due to rain. The views from the cable car were very good though and helped...More
