To see the fields it is necessary to climb on top of a hill in order to get the best view. The trek consists of (as usual) thousands of steps. On the way it crosses tiny Chinese villages though, giving an occasion to see some rural life.

The Rice plant itself is not really meaningful. In this season it shows a colorful and vivid green, yet from a close-up point of view is quite of low interest.
