Comfortable and private vehicle on the way;
Start the tour at 8:45am from your hotel in Guilin or at 7:30am from Yangshuo, then drive you to the Rice Terraces in Ping'an village. We will drive about 2.5 hours from Guilin and 3.5 hours from Yangshuo.
See the villages of the minority people of this area namely the Yao and Zhuang tribes on the way. Ping'an Village, home to the Zhuang people, was closed to the outside world due to the bad road conditions until 1997. Remarkable traditions and outlooks are preserved even though the majority of the local villagers have picked up second careers as restaurant staff, hostel or café owner, luggage porter or sedan chair carrier. This is probably a brilliant way to make a better living during slack farming season. At harvest, they will be busy harvesting crops in the fields, becoming a part of the scenery.
You can go to visit the tea farm and the Long Hair village on the way if you are interested ( exclude the long hair show ). In the area around Ping'an village there are many walking trails but the most popular is a walking trail of about 2 hours along the rice terraces with some beautiful views. Visit the No. 1 and No. 2 view in Ping'an village. Once the day‘s touring is complete, take you back to the hotel in Guilin. You will have a relax evening by yourself this day.
