Tour Itinerary

Day 1: Arrival at Taiyuan

Upon your arrival at Taiyuan Wusu International Airport. Our driver will hold a sign with your name waiting for you outside the baggage claim area. Pick up and transfer to Jinci. Jinci Temple has a long history, which can be traced back to the Western Zhou Dynasty (11th century BC to 711 BC), when King Cheng made his younger brother Yu a leader of one of his states. Yu was an intelligent leader who devoted all his energies to making the state prosperous, so his descendants built a temple for him after his death, in order to honor his achievement. After tour, transfer to Pingyao. We will live in Pingyao tonight.

Day 2: Pingyao (Lunch)

Pick up from your hotel. First visit the Ancient City Wall. This city wall enjoys the longest history compared with the others across China and remains almost intact. The walls measure about 12 meters high, with a perimeter of 6,000 meters. A 4-meter wide, 4-meter deep moat can be found just outside the walls.

Next stop is Rishengchang Former Bank. It was the pioneer of China's national banking sector, once operated the economic lifeline of the Qing dynasty throughout the nineteenth century. Its branches were distributed in more than 30 cities across the country, as well as far to Europe and America, Southeast Asia and other countries, becoming famous to the world known as "Land of Wealth" at the time.

Move to the Ancient Ming-Qing Street. Serving as the central axis, it has been the busiest commercial block of the city for hundreds of years. This 450-yard-long street gathers around 80 antique stores, including exchange shops, pawnshops, security guard companies, and other handicraft workshops. Back to hotel in Pingyao.

Day 3: Departure from Pingyao

Pick up from your hotel in Pingyao. Visit Wang Family Courtyard. Wang Family Courtyard in Shanxi is actually not a “courtyard”, it is a cluster of courtyards or castles. The huge Wang family compound used to have five castles, five lanes and five ancestral temples with an area of 250,000 square meters, much larger than the 150,000 square-meter Forbidden City in Beijing and Qiao Family Coutyard.With a history of over 680 years, the Wangs have lived on for 27 generations throughout all the ups and downs. This largest-existing folk residence cluster sits on the slopes of the hills. Layers of gardens and courtyard houses on different heights of the hills give the compound more levels and the hill more lively and glamour.

Then move on Shuanglin Temple. It is sited in the countryside of Qiaotou village about 6 to7 kilometers (3.7–4.3 mile) southwest of the ancient city of Pingyao. It is a large Buddhist temple in Shanxi Province and is inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1997. With more than 2,000 existing painted sculptures made in the Ming and Qing dynasties, Shuanglin Temple has been reputed as an "oriental art gallery of painted sculptures".

After tour, transfer to the airport or railway station to see you off.
