Regarded as a 3A national scenic spot and Guangdong's largest terrace, Oujia Terrace is located at the Oujia Village, Taibao Town, Lianshan Zhuang and Yao Autonomous County, Qingyuan, Guangdong. Specifically, it stands at the foot of Dawu Mountain, with an altitude of 400 to 800 meters, the highest of Lianshan County.

As a natural oxygen bar, Dawu Mountain has four distinct seasons with an average annual temperature of 18.9°C. A forest coverage rate of 93 percent and a high content of negative ion provide the organic paddies with a favorable environment to grow in the terrace.

Oujia Terrace is inhabited by two ethnic groups, Zhuang and Yao, with unique costumes and lifestyles. It also features various B&B, inns and farmhouses as well as an array of natural ingredients such as fish cultivated in the paddies, ducks, teas and homemade wines.

Apart from the spring ploughing season, you can also visit the terrace at other times in a year. In the early summer in May, flocks of glowworms can be seen fly around the terrace with the azaleas getting into full blossom and the seedlings waving in the wind. In September and October when the paddy rice ripens, the whole terrace is covered by vast area of golden paddies.
