  • Timeless is the word that comes first for this location determined by history. A magnificent palatial building headquarters of the Imperial power in Pingyao. In addition to the magnificence of the places there are judicial headquarters and prison, the place of execution, rooms and private gardens, an extraordinary Museum containing costumes of Imperial officials to assorted headdresses and embroidered ranks... There are also palanquins, chairs a carrier, furniture and all a host of details and decorative elements to carry us this time... The small boost is the small room in a suit on a local history of a judgment which is regularly given to the enjoyment of all!

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.
