Fodor's Review

A mesmerizing pattern of undulating fields has been cut into the hills at the Longsheng Longji Rice Terraces. These terraces, known as the "Dragon's Backbone," are amazing in both their scale and their beauty. They are worked, and have been for generations, by rice farmers from the local Yao, Dong, Zhuang, and Miao communities, who build their houses in villages on the terraced hills.
