  • It is interesting to see the Chinese culture and I believe it was more valid to visit because there was an accompanying Guide. I found the Wang Family Compound more interesting because it is bigger and therefore more impactful.

  • Very nice old family residence. It's huge! The courses are very beautiful and the gardens also. If you manage to pass between the groups, there is same way to be almost alone in some places. Too bad that the explanations in English are sparse because there are exhibitions in each court. It is easy to get there by bus from the station of buses of Pingyao (at the North Gate, walk up the Street outside the city walls until the first junction then right, it is the building with a big clock top). On the other hand, for the return, try to inquire about schedules... As we waited for a good half hour (around 17:30) and ended by accepting the offer of a taxi (70 Yuan) to take back us to the city. There are plenty of buses which pass, but who go to Taiyuan and surrounding tales

  • 到喬家大院看一看是不錯,可千萬別去甚麼喬家老宅,裡面擺了一堆神像,引導人員一直要遊客捐香油錢,亂搞。
  • 山西之旅的第一個理由是看了喬家大院(連續劇)...,理由雖然簡單,但收穫甚多...希望能永久保存完好.

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.
