Minority village and Longsheng Terraced Field: The Longji Terraces are built into the steep mountain range named "the Dragon's Backbone"about 2 hours from Guilin. The terraces look like ribbons as they wind from the foot to the top of the mountain. This ingenious construction makes best use of the scarce arable land and water resources in the mountainous area. There are about 66 square kilometres of terraced fields in the district. The terraces were first built in the Yuan Dynasty and completed in the Qing Dynasty by the Zhuang people.
