In March we did a special trip to Shanxi Province for a 3-day visit to the ancient walled city of Pingyao. As well as exploring the city, we hiked in the hills outside the walls.
Special treats included a command performance of Shanxi Opera, and two nights in a boutique 5-star courtyard hotel right in the center of the old city. We had guided tours of the alleys, thoroughfares, and the key historical sites, and also headed outside the ancient city walls to visit the ‘Civilian Forbidden City,’ the Shuanglin Temple, and to take a hike in the hills around the White Cloud Temple.
Huijie snapped too many shots for one page - below are a few highlights; you can find many more photos from this trip in our Pingyao 2010 photo set.
