Overall Satisfaction:
Totally awesome, I've never imagined the places used for planting could be this beautiful. These Chinese people could make art out of everything. The slow-pace of life impressed me deeply. Maybe that is why they do have time to decorate the fields. Actually, this place seems like an other North Europe to me, only in Chinese version. No one chases money or good work here. They plant their own food and make their own clothes with their own technique. The smile on their faces is totally true. No fake things. That's the life we want. And they have so many awesome landscape just nearby!

Thanks for the thoughtful arrangement we could enjoy the unique scenery in China without being troubled with bunch of things such as the residences and food. The local food is great, taste totally different from the fried things in our country, the local people make full use of the rice and the fish here, our tour guide said the people live here also, maybe sometimes, will find the insects and fired them, actually I do see people selling this kind of food on street but I don't think I am gonna try...maybe next time? I think the people here could make full use of everything, that's the only way you can explain the beauty of the terrace.

Overall Satisfaction:
If the karst landscape and the splendid scenery are not enough for you, (BTW, you must be insane )at least the beautiful terrace rice fields won't let you down. Comparing with the former two scenic spots that are gifted by the God, the latter one is absolutely the miracle of human being ourselves. I know we also have fields of grain and crops in the west, but only when aliens began to draw some pictures the field become famous, but the fields of Guilin demonstrate that, the farmers in China built a picture all by their
bare hands -and the fields are on the mountains. We plant crops, they plant art.
