Day trip from Guilin to Longji Rice Terraces

We did a day trip to The rice terraces from Guilin.

Arrival: Bus from Guilin QinTan Bus Terminal -> HePing Village -> Da Zhai Village

1. Take bus from QinTan Bus Terminal (琴潭客运) direction to LongSheng(龙胜)

  • Runs from 7am-7pm, every 15min. We took the earliest bus
  • Cost: 25 rmb
  • Ride time: 1.5-2hrs
  • Address of QinTan Bus terminal is: 31 Cuizhu Road, Guilin. Public bus No.26, 85, 88, 89 stop here

2. Get off at HePing Village (和平乡路口) , change bus for Da Zhai (大寨)

  • Runs from 7am - 5pm
  • Cost: 10 rmb
  • Ride time: 1hr to Da Village (大寨)
  • There are also buses here you can switch to Ping'an Village, which is closer only 40min ride from HePing, but we did a day trip so we chose Da Zhai as it has a cable car
  • Make sure you get on the right bus, buses to Ping'an and Da are different but look similar

3. Get off at Da Zhai village, we took the cable car up to the viewpoint, took 25min, and walked down which took 1.5hr

Return: Direct bus from Da Zhai - Guilin

1. We finished late so ended up taking the direct bus back, took the last bus at 4:30pm from the Da Zhai parking lot

  • Cost: 50rmb
  • Time: 3hrs
  • Dropped us off near the Guilin Train Station

Useful Tip:

  • Pack sth for lunch instead of wasting time looking for and eating at restaurants
  • Sunset is beautiful if you have time to stay over night
