Longsheng in China

Longsheng county in the northeast of Guangxi is known for its 700-year-old rice terraced fields and ethnic villages with unique architecture. The Longji (‘Dragon’s Backbone’) rice terraces, built on mountain slopes like cascading swirls, are set among ethnic minority villages including Zhuang and Yao and make for scenic hikes. Each community is characterized by distinct customs, both in their appearance as well as their traditions, such as the Yao women, who are famous for having the longest hair in the world! Expect homely restaurants serving authentic Chinese food and rice wines, while roadside vendors sell local favorites such as rice cooked with meat, vegetables, and spices. Outside of town, a visit to the Longsheng hot springs and the Huaping National Natural Reserve can be particularly rewarding.
