Take a Step Back in Time And Visit China's Ancient Town, Pingyao
Pingyao Ancient Town Alex here to tell you about the ancient town of Pingyao, China. I live in Shijiazhuang, China which is an hour southwest from Beijing if you take the bullet train. I’ve lived in China for over a year now, and even before I moved here, I had traveled around China several times. I usually want to do the well-known destinations such as Xi’an, Guilin, Tianjin, or Zhangjiajie, but several weeks ago I didn’t have the time or money for a five to ten-day vacation. I needed a getaway that could be done in one weekend. All my coworkers recommended Pingyao. Within Pingyao is Pingyao Ancient City, which has been restored and styled after the once financial hub ( China’s first bank originated here) that was the Pingyao during the Qing Dynasty. Not only is it an ancient city, but it is also one of China’s walled cities like Xi’an. Constructed during the Ming Dynasty, the walls are excellently preserved and make for a lovely walk overviewing the ancient town. I’ve traveled to over twenty cities in China and Pingyao fast became one of my favorites, and I am already looking forward to visiting again.Alexandra Petri
