Visiting a Rice Terraces of Guangxi province and have walking.
The Longsheng (Lóngshèng Tītián in Chinese, means “Dragon’s Backbone”) rice terraces are located about 100 km (2 hours on the bus) from Guilin, are not only a spectacular viewpoint but a remarkable milestone in agricultural engineering (the construction history dates back to the XIII-th century).
Take a bus from Guilin to Longsheng, get off at Heping and catch the other bus to the terraces (on the way most likely you’ll be requested to buy a ticket by the local authorities). Upstairs there are two viewpoints, named (surprise!) N1 and N2.
Afterward, most of the tourists usually go down to Heping and back to Guilin. The better thing to do (safer if you have 4 hours) is to take a local guide (as there is no well-signed way) and make a half-day track through the Yao People minorities’ villages (Yao women have a longest black hair :) We’ve traveled through Zhangliu and Dazhai villages and took some pics on the road. From Dazhai it’s better to take a bus to Heping or to Longsheng.
Be there early (better 4 o’clock). We’ve got at 6 and had a good chance not to catch a bus back to Guilin :) (though there should be some guest houses in Longsheng too and maybe even in the villages).
Previously, I suggested that you walk around Ubud. For he second part of my Lomography Day Trip piece on Ubud, allow me to show you places that are worth visiting. Don't worry, you won't get lost! If you do want to get lost, just rent a bicycle and ride around!

Need a break from a hot day walking around the city in Budapest? Why don't you visit the Széchenyi baths situated at the City Park and enjoy the warm thermal waters in beautiful surroundings?

Say goodbye to October and hello to November. The weather is getting colder but we have a bunch of workshops that will keep you warm! We have a lot in store for us, from a walk in the park with the Petzval to creating light painting masterpieces.
There is a weekend in New York where the city streets look like an alternate universe, full of fantastic characters and people who seem to have walked out of a comic book or a movie.

On a cold day in August, I took my LC-A+, Nikon FM, and Canon EOS 500, along with rolls of Lomography Earl Grey 100 and Kodak Vision 250D on a trip to Villa Epecuén in the Province of Buenos Aires, approximately 550 kilometers (341 miles) away from home.

If you loved the Petzval Lens, we have Joseph Petzval to thank for. The mathematician/inventor/physicist was born in Hungary, but spent most of his life in Vienna.
