"Pingyao, a Unesco World Heritage Site, is an exceptionally well-preserved traditional Han Chinese city. Its city walls, old temples and courtyard houses were built in the Ming and Qing dynasties. Located on the old trade route between Beijing and Xi'an, Pingyao was one of the flourishing trade centres in northern China. It was here, where China's first banks were set up in the early 18th century which rapidly developed into a widespread network of banks all over the country. After its heyday the city fell into decline after about 1850, and its streets stayed unchanged since then because of the lack of money for maintenance work. On this 4-day trip you will not only visit the old town with its old streets and courtyard houses complexes, but also Zhengguo Temple, Shuanglin Temple and Jinci Temple.
