Dragon City

An industrial and cultural hub of northern China with a population of more than 4 million, Taiyuan boasts a long and storied history that now seems somewhat overshadowed by the city modern facade. Since its founding in 497 BCE, the city served as the capital of several dynasties. Today, Taiyuan represents an important economic center with a booming coal industry. The handful of remaining historical buildings, which sit west of the main train station, serve as popular stops on most Taiyuan itineraries. Otherwise, the city offers some borderline-futuristic architecture worthy of photography. With the Inspirock custom trip planner, Taiyuan and other destinations across the globe can be made central to your personalized travel plans.

Where to stay

The majority of Taiyuan's accommodations line the grid-like streets of the city center, either side of the north-south river that bisects it. Almost all flank Middle Ring Street and are comfortable but undeniably bland business hotels. You can find the highest concentration of options around Yingze district, but don't expect much variation from the soulless, mid-range accommodations found throughout town.
