Top Tips

There are quite a few sites on offer here, so do allow yourself a couple days at least to do the place justice.
As with most places of interest in the country, do expect it to get very busy during national holidays.
If you come here in winter, then smog from the locals burning coal adds an authentic (although somewhat hazardous) quality to the air.
It is possible to pay individual ticket prices for the sites around the city, or buy a combo ticket to include several. Check at a tourist information booth for the latest prices and deals.

Top Descriptions

UNESCO-protected Shuanglin Temple is one of the best sights outside of Pingyao Old Town. With more than 2,000 sculptures on display here, many of them quite bizarre, and a very impressive multi-armed carving of Bodhisattva, it’s hard to not be awed by this impressive collection.

Top Tips

A taxi from the centre of shouldn’t take longer than 20 minutes, and if you’re not pushed for time then for CNY1 you can catch bus 108 too.
There are a lack of maps, leaflets and general information here, so expect to have to use your imagination to fill in the many missing historical details.
Walking here along the main highway is not very pleasant or safe thanks to the main trucks that pass by at speed.
