- On request
Journey to Longsheng on a private day tour from Guilin to explore China's rich rural culture. On arrival trek 40 minutes up to the top of the famous Longji Rice Terraces for a majestic view of one of China's most scenic natural sights. The terraces wind from the top of the hill to the valley and blanket the rolling hills like ribbons. Walk back down to the farm and have lunch in a local restaurant. In the afternoon visit the Yao Minority Village which is close by to the farm for a cultural interaction with Yao people to learn about their traditions and way of life.
With a population of 2,637,421 in the year 2000, the Yao ethnic minority is a typical nationality living in the mountainous regions of the southern part of China. Their rich culture shows off the bright colours of the traditional suits still being worn today and typical houses they still live in.
