Hike through picturesque rice paddy fields surrounded by green hills and mist at Yuanyang Rice Terraces. When the water fills up the terraces, they mirror the landscape, creating some amazing abstract formations. Witness sunsets and sunrises from five main viewing platforms, each giving a different perspective, then enjoy some refreshing tea and taste local cuisine while gazing at beautiful nature. Due to the area's renowned fogginess, which definitely adds to the charming ambiance, many visitors choose to stay for a couple of days in order to catch clear weather. Ask a local person to point out where you can buy some rice produced in the area.
