Warm Tips about Longji Transportation

1. You may need to change a minibus to get into the rice terraces area at the entrance of Longji Area during some special period of time.
During peak season like the National Holiday (10.1-10.7), there may be traffic control in Longji Terraced Fields. Once there is such control, all the buses and coaches cannot get into the parking lot of each rice terraces area but should stop at the entrance of the whole Longji Terraced Field.

2. You are not suggested to arrange your Longji trip on your departure day.
Inside the Longji Area, there is a section of driving road that all the buses from/to Jinkeng and Ping'an should pass through, thus sometimes, especially during the holidays like the National Holiday (10.1-10.7) and the Holiday of Labors Day (days around May 1st), there may be a traffic jam. If you arrange your Longji trip on your departure day, you may miss your flight or train.
