Know More about this tour

At 8:30am, your English-speaking guide and driver will meet you at the lobby of your Guilin hotel and head to Longji Rice Terraces (also known as Dragons Backbone Rice Terraces).

On your way to Longji Rice Terraces, you will see old villages with bamboo groves and wooden houses with mountains in the backdrop. You guide will explain customs and traditions of different minorities such as Yao and Zhuang to you for better appreciation.
