Longsheng Local Custom Tips by Willettsworld
Longsheng Local Customs: 10 reviews and 16 photos
Rice steamed in bamboo seems to be a local custom here. In fact, I had some for lunch whilst in Ping'an that came with some vegetables and was very sticky and quite difficult to remove from the bamboo and eat. They split the bamboo in half for you. You'll see women cooking bamboo in Ping'an.
Some photos of some local women working in the fields on the hills.
These particular Zhuang women wanted me to pay them to 'let their hair down' but after seeing the women doing the same in Huanglao, I declined their offer even though they were quite demanding.
The Yao women are very famous for having incredibly long hair which can measure up to 2.1m in length. Reason for it to be so long is that they only have their hair cut twice throughout their lives - once when they turn 18 and once again when they get married which is when they finally reveal it to the public, which you'll get to see. You'll notice that the younger girls have their hair covered by a black hat.
