See sunrise & sunset at Yuanyang rice terraces

The Yuanyang Rice Terraces are one of Yunnan’s star attractions. Less visited and less developed than Guangxi’s Longji Rice Terraces, a visit to Yuanyang offers a fascinating glimpse into rural China.

The rice terraces are spectacular in every season and at any time of the day, but sunset and sunrise are really special. The best place to view the sunset is the Tiger’s Mouth Viewpoint (Laohuzui), where you can marvel at panoramic views of the terraces stretching out in front of you. We recommend staying in Duoyishu, which is one of the best places to see incredible sunrise views. If you are staying at the charming Jacky’s Guesthouse, then amazing views can be seen right from the hotel’s terrace, within easy reach of your breakfast right after!
