[InKunming--Yunnan]  What's the most beautidul scene in autumn? Definitely, the answer is rice field. There is a large golden field of rice in Guangnan which is only 1 hour and 50 minutes away from Kunming. The China Guangnan 2018 World Rice Culture Festival will be held here from September 19 to October 6.

Guangnan county, located in the southeast of Yunnan province and the northeast of Wenshan Zhuang and Miao autonomous prefecture, is at the junction of Yunnan, Guizhou, and Guangxi, playing a significant role as the airport and railway developing in recent years. There are 11 ethnic groups, such as Zhuang, Han, Miao, Yi, Yao, etc., accounting for 62% of the total population of Guangnan. The most mysterious is that Guangnan was the kingdom of Gouding 2,200 years ago, which was 500 more years than the Old Dian Kingdom, being regarded as one of the 8 ancient kingdoms in Yunnan.

The nearly 20-day festival links the Mid-Autumn Festival and the National Day, offters many interesting activities for tourists, such as Zhuang embroidery products, plateau agricultural fair, county museum, rice cultural ritual, long street banquet, rice auction, art creation competition, bikini show, music festival and so on.
