Rice Paddies Private Tour

We will pick you up from your hotel at 8:30 am before heading north to Longshen, an area of Guilin famous for its stepped rice terraces. During the two-hour journey, we will enjoy the picturesque landscapes of rural China.

We will stroll through the famous rice fields of Longji and discover the origin of its name, which means the "Dragon Column". Our professional guide will tell you all about the unique irrigation system set up here by the local farmers. You will also enjoy a spectacular panoramic view of the mountainside.

After enjoying the landscape of Longji, we continue to Longsheng, where the guide will tell us about the more than ten ethnic groups that live here. We will visit the river bank to see the women of Huangluo Yao village washing their traditionally long hair, which has been known to grow up to 5 ft long.

After several hours exploring the beautiful region of Longsheng, we will return to the hotels in Guilin, arriving around 4:30 pm.

Best from June to October

The best time of the year to enjoy the rice terraces is from June to October. When making your reservation, you should bear in mind that local restaurants are closed from November to April.
