    Longsheng Longji Terraces, Guangxi, China, received its name because the terraced fields resemble a dragon's scales, while the summit of the mountain range looks like the backbone of the dragon. It is a priceless legacy inherited from the forefathers of Zhuang and Yao peoples who applied the traditional Chinese philosophical conception of "unity of heaven and earth" together with their wisdom and talents to the mountainous areas to create wonders.
