The Rice Terraces in Longsheng show a picture of great momentum and imposing beauty, being reputed as having no match in the world. Longsheng Rice Terraces, also called Longji Rice Terraces, are reached from Guilin by mountain roads amid spectacular scenery. With a history of more than 700 years, the area is still being used for growing premium quality rice by Yao and Zhuang villagers. The rice terraces are built into the hillsides and look like great steps cut into the slopes as they wind around the mountainsides. This ingenious construction makes best use of the scarce arable land and water resources in the mountainous area.
Not by human dwellings, not in crowded cities alone, are the sights and sounds of life. The wildest places of the earth are full of them – Solomon Northup.
Magical places are always beautiful and deserve to be contemplated ... Always stay on the bridge between the invisible and the visible - Paulo Coelho.
Located in the upstream of the Yulong River, the Fuli Bridge is a stone bridge that measures 30 meters long, 5 meters wide and 10 meters high and as built at the height of the Ming Dynasty around 500 years ago. It compliments its surroundings perfectly and its deep grey slabs blending in with the mighty karst mountains and the ancient trees that hang down over the river bank. It is the perfect place to enjoy the beauty of Yangshuo.
