The Longji terraced field, known as “the world's top terrace”, is only 77km away from downtown Guilin. It is a great place for shooting large landscapes! At the time of the autumn harvest, Longji terraced fields attract Chinese and foreign tourists with their golden grandeur of mountains and plains. The Zhuang and Yao people who have lived here from generation to generation have added charm to Longji terraced fields with their simple and primitive ecological style.
[Go to traffic] by car, chartered or choose to participate in a day trip.
If you first arrive in Guilin, you are not advised to drive by yourself. The reasons are: The road to Longji is circling too much, the road to the downhill of Panshan Highway is much, and the safety factor is not high if you are not familiar with the road conditions, but if you have local friends to take you there, This other said. Traveling on a tourist bus usually takes part in a local day trip. The bus is pick up by car. This is equivalent to sharing the fare with others. They usually have a tour guide for this purpose, and they can take a step from the hotel to the scenic spot to save money and provinces. time.
What the Longji sees must be popular knowledge is Longji terraced fields, Zhuang terraces and Yao terraces. Because of the national style, it can be divided into Jinkeng Yao terraces view area and Pingyao Zhuang terrace view area. The best time to look at the terraced fields is either the season before or after the clearing season, or when the rice leaves are green in summer, or when the autumn ear is golden.

From the foot of the mountain to the top of the mountain, the hills are like snails, and the mountains are like towers. They are layered and stacked. "Winter white, spring water, summer green, autumn golden" is the four seasons of peaceful terraces. It is very close to the ancient and primitive Long Zhuang Ancient Zhuangzhai, and is also close to the “Yijiang Yuan” in the first village of Guilin.
1. The Longji Scenic Spot on the mountain needs to transfer to the green car in the area. The cost is RMB 40/person. When attending a travel agency's itinerary, you need to pay attention to whether or not the fee is included, but it does not matter. 40 yuan is a well-known price, and general travel agencies will also give tips.
2. The altitude of Longji is high, and the cost of transporting food is much higher than that of Guilin. Therefore, the price is at least 40% higher than the urban area of Guilin, which is a relatively high level. It is recommended to bring lunch food on the day of the Longji terraces. If there are friends in the local area, they will certainly warmly invite you to have lunch together, rice fish, Yao tea, colored rice, and other foods.
3, Longji terraces a few natural scenic spots, many trails, less marked, there are friends led by the tour guide to play around before you remember to keep a good tour guide contact. There are cableways above the Jinkeng terraces, and it is advisable to listen to the guide's suggestions in combination with personal circumstances to choose whether or not to take a ride.

2. Does the Guilin Tourism Society slash passengers and force consumption?
Guilin is a famous tourist city. The economic pillar of the city is the tourism industry and there are many employees. Therefore, there are some people with mixed interests in Guilin traveling in this industry. In general, it is not recommended that you directly arrive in Guilin Baotou without booking in advance. Travelling will greatly increase the chance of being cheated because there will be many “wild horses” at the train station or airport exit to draw guests at low prices, and then resell the guests. There will be many invisible consumption traps. Therefore, it is recommended that you schedule the itinerary through the registration of the Internet or travel agency before you arrive in Guilin. After your arrival, there will be special staff to arrange the itinerary, which is safer and more secure.
In addition, there will be some travel agencies on the Internet playing hide-and-seek passengers, but in the itinerary to arrange some hidden and mandatory consumer items, such as small traffic, small tickets, Jingzhong shop. So when you choose a business consultation, be sure to ask if there are any shopping arrangements and whether there is any hidden spending. The phenomenon of compulsory shopping and forced consumption in Guilin was still a few years earlier. However, after the enactment of the Tourism Law, such phenomena have been significantly reduced, and everyone can still travel to Guilin with confidence.
3, Guilin gameplay recommended?
The sights of Guilin are centered on the city center and evenly distributed throughout the northeast and southwest. However, there are no direct lines between the attractions. Therefore, the middle station connecting scenic spots is Guilin downtown. That is to say, all of them must go back to Guilin before setting off to go to other attractions.
Like other domestic destinations, there are three different ways to travel to Guilin: FITs with group tours, independent chartered tours, self-help and self-driving tours. Individual travelers and group tours As the name suggests, tourists from all over the country come to Guilin to form a team to conduct sightseeing tours with the group. The greatest advantage of this type of tour is that the price will be more affordable, and the drawback is that tourism is not free, and the sights are spent. However, independent chartered tours and FITs are just the opposite of group tours. Individual chartered tourists tend to be more expensive. The reason for the high price is mainly because of the small number of people. The average fares per person and guide service fees are relatively high, but if the company’s units are visited by tourists, It can reach more than 16 people, and the price will not differ much from the price of individual guests and group tours. However, this type of excursion is more free, and the itinerary of the itinerary can be customized according to their own needs. Again to give you a vivid image of the metaphor, individual tours more like a ride on the bus, to the station you have to get down, can not think of where to go, so the fares are very cheap; In addition, the independent chartered tour is like riding a rental Wherever you think about the car, the fare is calculated based on the destination you arrive at. The last resort is self-guided tour and self-driving tours. This tour is very popular with young people. This type of tour needs a detailed strategy for travel before you travel. The traffic needs to be resolved on your own. The hotel can travel on its own schedule. If you don't have time to do your homework, it is recommended that you choose to go with a private tour or an independent charter tour.
