    Ming Qing Street: the main street in Ping Yao, lined with ancient houses.
    The street is usually crowded.
    This picture was taken in the morning, when the street is quiet and less crowded.

    You can go to Ping Yao by train or mini-bus. It's 1.5 hours to Tai Yuan by bus. ¡¡There are buses every half an hour.
    Ping Yao is a small town. you can get around on foot or by 'man-drive wagon'.

Taiyuan Warnings and Dangers

    It's not really a warning, but shortage of water is embarassing enough. The warning is that if you stay in hostels or inns, take bath before the bath-rush-hour and store some water with basin for the morning.

    my experience: water suddenly stopped when i just put shampoo onto my hair; i tried the switch to figure it out, and then I felt that there is something dropping down from the shower tap. I raised my face and saw muddy water drop down. I didn't take bath that night, and worse, there is no water to wash my face in the morning.

    You should keep this warning in mind when you are travelling in any place in Middle Land of China, particularly in towns or less developed places.

Taiyuan Off The Beaten Path

    Visit the ancient town of Pingyao about 100 km from Taiyuan. Not many overseas tourists go there so you see a different China than usual. It is an ancient waled city and can be reached by mini bus from Taiyuans bus depot near the railway station.
