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).
Located in the Zhejiang province, Hangzhou is known as one of the most beautiful cities in China. I went there following my aunt’s advice. She studied calligraphy in Hangzhou Arts University (杭州美术大学) and told me, "When I sat by the lake, I just understood Chinese painters. They painted what they see, not less."

When Marty and Doctor Brown visited the 21st of October 2015, things were flying and people were glued to technology. In 1989, the predictions of Back to the Future II might have looked far-fetched and funny. Today, of course, is a different story. Some of these predictions have come true!

Beijing is a ready-made template for panoramic shots. Tourist baits like The Great Wall, Forbidden City and Summer Palace stretch for miles. Those who walk from end to end will have more to say. For instance, that the ground goes on to infinity. Or that they have never been so tired and amazed all at once.
