Ping An Zhuang Village

Ping’an Zhuang Village

Located on top of Longji Terraced fields, Ping’an Zhuang Village, is a quiet village with a population of less than 200. It is known as the “Garden of Eden” by foreign tourists. The Zhuang ethnic people that live there maintain traditional and simplistic lifestyles. The majestic Longji Terraced Fields are cultivated by them, along with the Yao minority groups. The Zhuang people have lived on rice cultivation on the fields for generations.

The village maintains its traditional 3-story wooden buildings. It is a typical construction of high foot railing style. These kinds of buildings are called “Diao jiao lou” (house projecting over a piece of land or water). This way of constructing is to keep the house clean and protect the family from attacks by snakes or other beasts.

The dressing among the Zhuang people remains the same as traditionally. Men wear short gowns made of coarse cloth, while women wear white laced garments and a flower headscarfs.

The surroundings of the Zhuang village are quiet and elegant with a pleasant climate all year round. From the village or the top of the mountain visitors can get the best view of the Longji Terraced Fields. It is also splendid to watch the sunrise or sunset at Ping’an Zhuang Village.
