Longji Terraces, Guilin
Longji Terraces, Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region [pconline.com.cn]
Said to be the most beautiful rice terraces in China, the Longji (Dragon's Backbone) Terraces are located near Pingxiang town in the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region. The terraces resemble the scales on the back of a dragon – hence the name. A good time to view the terraces is at sunrise, and the best time to visit is in May when water in the newly irrigated fields reflects the green rice seedlings and the cloud-dotted blue sky.
