Overview

Longji Ancient Zhuang Village Longji Ancient Zhuang Village

Located in the south of Ping'an Village of Longsheng County, Longji Ancient Zhuang Village (Longji Gu Zhuang Zhai) has a history of more than 700 years. It consists of four tribes, which are Liao Family Tribe, Hou Family Tribe, Pingduan Tribe and Pingzhai Tribe. Zhuang people of three family names (Liao, Hou and Pan) live there. They belong to the Baiyi Zhuang – White Clothes Zhuang.

The Longji Zhuang Ancient Village is quieter and more traditional than some other ethnic villages, because it was only recently developed and to tourists. Their houses are very unique and consist the largest scale of Diaojiaolou wooden houses in China. Diaojiaolou are a kind of wooden houses built by the ethnic people in mountainous areas. They were built by the mountain slopes, and supported by wooden columns over the ground. They can protect against snakes or bugs and are damp proof. The handrails are useful for hanging clothes and other agricultural produce.

To help visitors better learn about the local life, a traditional house which is the oldest and most typical of the local structures was used and opened to tourists. Besides visiting inside the house, visitors can talk with the residents (your tour guide can do the translation) while sipping their hand-made tea. A Zhuang Museum is also available at the tribe where visitors can learn about the history and culture of the local people.
