For those looking for a wonderful country experience, clean hotel and some wonderful hiking, nothing is better than Longsheng Rice Terraces outside of Guilin. It is a bit of a walk up hill to the hotel but well worth the effort. Just for the day or spend a couple days hiking the Dragon’s Back across the top of the rice terraces. Great local food and convenient clean rooms with western facilities. Run by a family you will feel at home enjoying the local culture of the Zhrung and the Yeo people in their colorful everyday dress. The Yeo women only cut their hair once in their life time when they are 13 and are in the Guiness Book of Records for the people with the longest hair. I wrote about them earlier. Note our guide from Guilin who took us to this area. Local guides make your tour as they know all the wonderful places to take you that most tours do not even know about.
