Pingyao Ancient Walled CityPingyao Ancient Walled City Tour

Pingyao in central Shanxi Province is one of China’s best preserved ancient towns, and it is well worth a visit if you have an extra day or two to spend during your China tour.  Due to its somewhat isolated location, the ancient city wall and buildings of Pingyao have managed to avoid much of the rampant destruction and modernization that have remade most of modern China, with nearly all of the city’s structures still standing just as they were hundreds of years ago. Pingyao has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site not only because of  its well preserved status but also due to its importance as a financial capital of China during the Qing Dynasty. Rishengchang in Pingyao is said to be the first bank ever established in all of China. Surviving as an outstanding example of both Ming and Qing dynasty architecture and city planning, Pingyao fits in well with a combined Beijing - Pingyao - Xi'an tour, or on its own as a one or two-day trip to see China as it was centuries ago. These are sample tours for your reference, you can book these or we can customize any tour to fit your schedule and what you want to see. Flights/train tickets are not included but we can book those for you - please contact us for an up-to-date quotation or e-mail us at info@beijingdiscoverytours.com.
