Here you can experience Zhuang people’s original lifestyle. Also, you may come across the local customs of Long hair combing( It is a way women comb their hair).Besides, you can enjoy the simple living rooms in the Zhuang villages, tasting Longji tea and Longji rice wine. The wine is similar to sake ,but still has unfiltered grains of sticky rice in it.
The fantastic scenery of Longji Terraced Fields is favored by visitors and photographers both at home and abroad. And the scenery is always gorgeous no matter in what seasons. In spring, the water is irrigated into the fields and it looks like layers and layers of silvery ribbons and when the summer comes it turns out green waves rushing continuously down the mountainside from the heaven. The autumn is the harvest season for the peasants and also the golden season decorating the entire terraces with the gold hues of ripened rice. When it is in Winter, white snow covers all over the terraced fields which seem like the dragons are playing with water.
