Visit ping an

A quaint, traditional village set on the step-like rice fields of the Dragon's Back Rice Terraces, Ping An is one of the hidden gems of China. The rice terraces are a series of gracefully tiered platforms, which become progressively narrower the higher they are, giving them the appearance of a huge snail when seen from afar. This area is home to a number of ethnic minorities, predominantly the Zhuang, heirs to a distinct culture and long history, and who number approximately 16 million across China.

Best Time to Visit Ping An

Best time to visit Yangshuo, Guilin & Ping An are the periods of late March to May and late September throughout November when the weather is relatively mild and days are generally sunny with temperatures varying between 20-30°C.

Best time to visit the Longji Rice Terraces is at the beginning of May when farmers start planting and irrigating the fields filled with water (although you need to be lucky with the morning mist). Another excellent time is the first week of October when the paddies have turned golden yellow just before the harvest. Note that the first week of October are the National Holidays also called the Golden Week which may refer to the colour of the rice or the prices charged by local businesses.
