Pingyao Tours

The Pingyao settlement in central Shanxi is located on the east bank of the Fen River, a 90-minute drive southwest of Taoyuan airport. A regional financial hub in the 16th century, it is famous for its Ming and Qing urban planning and architecture. The walled old town in Pingyao is UNESCO World Heritage-listed and has more than a hundred streets lined with around 4,000 17th to 19th-century shops and houses, complete with red lanterns that have stood the test of time. Discover ancient towers and temples such as the Confucius Temple and the Shuanglin Temple. With a setting that almost resembles a period film on ancient China, the walled city invites you to explore its heritage buildings and local ways of life on foot or a golf cart; taxis and cars being off-limits in most areas.

Highlights

  • Ancient Walled Old Town
  • Confucius Temple & Shuanglin Temple
