Take a day trip to the famous Longji Rice Terraces, located about 2 hours away from Xingping. These terraces are a marvel of engineering and offer breathtaking views of cascading rice fields carved into the mountainside. Explore the villages of Ping'an or Dazhai, where you can interact with the local Zhuang and Yao ethnic minority communities. Enjoy a traditional lunch in one of the local restaurants, sampling dishes made from the region's specialty, bamboo shoots. If time permits, hike along the terraces for a closer look at this incredible agricultural landscape.
