Went to Ancient Chuang village, (open to tourism for 1yr vs Ping'an village, which opened 10 yrs ago). Was the most peaceful and quiet part of our China trip. Took 2h 15m to drive each way from our hotel (Guilin Bravo) and our guide Ocsar, was very knowledgeable. Great lunch, fresh bamboo, bamboo rice!

This was a private tour so solo client. Pan was a great guide for the day and the pace up to the lookout for the rice terraces was just right. Lunch was excellent. A very enjoyable day.
