Pingyao is a city that delights and surprises.
Here a group of residents get a gentle start to their day.
Pingyao is in Shanxi Province and still preserves its old city within its heart. The village could afford to build large fortified walls, a Confucian temple, a private bank and a city tower in the middle to keep watch and alert the citizens.
Several of Sino-Immersions tours, including the Immersed in China's Winter, include this fascinating city, complete with heritage, fine food and much to consider.
