Longji Rice Terrace: Pin ' an or Dazhai

Hi there,

we intend to go from Guilin for a day trip to Longji rice terraces with a private driver. What would you suggest to visit Ping'an or Dazhai? We would like to do a short hike of about 2 hours. What is in your opinon more impressive? Is the new cable car in Dazhai a must do?

Would you stop in Tian touzai and Jiangtozhon on the way or would you skip it to spend more time in Ping'an and Dazhai.

Unfortunately, we can not stay overnight.

Thanks for your help!

Hesse

Dazhai may be better.

Dazhai is the most spectacular tribe and about 30+ minutes-drive further than Pin'an tribe.As u plan an independent travel,u don't have to sightsee in a rush like travel group guests.So there should be enough time for u going to Dazhai.

i think Dazhai is better.There are three parking lot at terrace.You can drive to the parking lot which is neer Dazhai directly .At Dazhai there are three viewing points,you can go to the NO2 viewing point neer the Tian touzhai.

Definitely Dazhai!

If hiking uphill is difficult for you, you may do the cable car up then hike down.
