The Longji Rice Terraces tour was a day well spent. Hiking through the terraces offered some of the most spectacular scenery I've encountered. Each viewpoint seemed to surpass the last, and our guide was fantastic, sharing stories of the local Zhuang and Yao people's culture and traditions. This tour is ideal for anyone wanting to immerse themselves in rural Chinese landscapes.
