Rules of thumb

When to go:

The best time of year to head to Yuanyang is from Novem­ber to March (spring and win­ter). In the spring, flow­ers blos­som and the ter­races are full of color. In the win­ter, the crops have been har­vested and the pad­dies are filled with wa­ter. It makes the lay­ers of ter­race very dis­tinc­tive and re­flects more sun­light.

Where to go:

There are four main scenic spots to take pho­tos of the rice ter­races in Yuanyang county. Be pre­pared though as they are far from each other. The best way to see them is to rent a car with a lo­cal driver for a one day trip pack­age for around 500 yuan ($73).
