Ancient Town

The 2.25 sq kilometers ancient town of Pingyao, an example of Han nationality, covered by the 10m in height wall was the financial and business center of the Shanxi Province in both Ming and Qing dynasties.

Shops open their doors to reveal modern cashier equipment perched on antique tabletops. Bustling about are bicycles, rickshaws and scooters. Here in Pingyao, modernity lives with centuries old relics.
