  • Flat Haruka Castle from the 108 bus 1 RMB. Admission fee: 35 RMB. Low season for tourists is zero. You can certainly look at color and differences in each building has many Buddha images. Feeling that masts not spectators. 108 bus is often so watch out.

  • Five kilometres from downtown to be missed the most beautiful temple in the whole area of Pingyao. Incredible collection of sculptures stored inside (we speak of about sixteen hundred, but to me it seemed a lot less and I hope I'm wrong). Wooden and earthenware dating back to Song and Qing, beautiful.

  • Went there with my wife over our last day in Pingyao. It was very impressive and it is shamed the whole temple was not persevered and/or maintained to the standard it was supposed to be.  more »

  • A very empty and dirty place. Besides me, there were 6 other Chinese people in the entire temple. The statues are covered with dust and sand, as is everything there. The upside is that it's quiet and unrestored, but also not taken care of. Not worth 35cny.
  • Not worth visiting. Way better temples to visit in this country than this one.
  • Very fine clay. Drawback is that in order to protect many places are fenced, and fail to see the details.

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.
