Why should I farm them?
First things first, why should you farm rare spawns and treasures?
The answer is easy of course: Loots and experience!
Most treasures in the Townlong Steppes treasures aren't particularly great to use other than the Yaungul Fire Carrier (which is also a nice transmog piece), but they do grant a hefty amount of experience (700,000 exp rested). If you manage to get all the treasures in Pandaria, it should add up to more than an entire level for doing nothing other than looting off the ground!
The rare spawns in the Townlong Steppes have a chance of dropping unique vanity items as well as ilvl 440 amulets of all types. Giving you yet another boost on the gear curve to help grind out those last 5 levels! I recommend doing the Dread Wastes first if you are after great twink gear however!
Where do I farm them?
Following the two tables below and jumping over to wowhead guides for more information, you should be able to easily find the treasures in pandaria! I highly recommend you do this with a level 90 friend who has a 2 seater flying mount, or if you've been a smart player and RAFed yourself, you can do it all by your lonesome.

After completing the Townlong Steppes rares and treasures, I highly recommend moving to the Kun-Lai Summit for more goodies!
Good luck and happy hunting!
