Pingyao County

Trip Planner Asia  /  China  /  Shanxi  /  Pingyao County
An ancient walled city, Pingyao County can trace its history back around 2,700 years, and has been designated a World Heritage Site. The walls, built in 1370, still stand in good condition and act as the boundaries of the county, which still conforms to the traditional Ba gua principles of Taoist cosmology in the way it has been arranged. Visits to Pingyao County, once an important financial center, offer a glimpse back into the times of the Qing dynasty, with a wealth of distinctive architectural highlights along well-maintained old streets. Use our China trip planner to arrange your visit to Pingyao County and any other destinations in China that take your fancy.

Where to stay in Pingyao County

Many visitors to Pingyao County consider staying in one of the hotels and hostels located within the city walls to get the authentic experience. The converted Ming and Qing dynasty buildings located on the main roads--in particular, the pedestrianized street leading east to west through town--house some luxurious options, with onsite spas, restaurants, and pools. Take a peak at the side streets in the old city for some more budget-friendly hotels, as well as the odd hostel with dormitory-style rooms.
