Yuanyang, China, is the home to the famous and picturesque Yuanyang Rice Terraces. The area is well known for its rice-paddy terracing, which make for a stunning and beautiful view of the countryside. Guests should note that the weather is unpredictable, and scenery can be completely wiped out on foggy days, so guests may have to stay multiple days in the area before getting a clear day.

Hostels in Yuanyang, China, are mainly divided between Xinjie town and Duoyishu Village. The former is where the main bus station is located; the latter is the actual location of the rice terrace. Guests can choose to stay in Yuanyang, China hostels in either area, depending on preference.

Xinjie is a small town with few local shops and no tourist attractions. Guests staying in Xinjie can easily catch a minivan to visit the rice terraces during the day. The advantage of staying in a Yuanyang, China hostel in Xinjie is that it would allow guests to catch early morning buses leaving Yuanyang, as the Yuanyang, China hostels here are located right around the main bus station.

Duoyishu Village is located amongst the rice terraces. Yuanyang, China hostels here are conveniently located within ten minutes' drive from all the terraces in the area, such as Bada Scenic Area. There are also Yuanyang, China hostels located on the rice terraces themselves, and operated by the rice farmers themselves. Be aware there are almost no food options available in Duoyishu Village, aside from the in house kitchens of the hostel. All hostels in Yuanyang, China, have their own kitchens where guests can order food for a fee.

While the language barrier is a real challenge in many Yuanyang, China hostels, English-speaking guests can find a few hostels carrying international brands such as YHA, where the staff speak perfect English and have experience dealing with international guests. Guests without their own vehicles can easily arrange transport with their Yuanyang, China hostels, as many hostel owners are also part-time drivers or guides, and can give guests cheaper rates. There are also public shuttle buses running along the roads that you can hail down.
