In Ping’an Zhuang Village, you will unravel the iconic “Seven Stars Accompanying the Moon” and “Nine Dragons and Five Tigers”, whose surreal beauty has been immortalized by numerous photos. These rice paddies are the result of hundreds of years’ hard work. They are also the living example of man and nature live harmoniously.

By far, over 700 Zhuang people call this unspoiled paradise home. Despite of the urban sprawl in outside world which demolishes many old villages and towns along its way, Zhuang people here still carry on the centuries-old lifestyle and traditions. They plow the land like their ancestors did hundreds of years ago, they sing the same songs and perform the same dances which are passed down from generation to generation. Living in a world of jagged and undulating terrain, Zhuang people have to save each itch of arable land and invented Stilt House, a wooden stone architecture incorporating practical usage and aesthetic beauty. Nestling up against slopes and facing the vast rice paddies, these houses are over 100-year-old. Each compound here is designed to stay away from the attacks of animals, which once roam around in groups.
