Many Chinese old cities have lost their traditional architecture with more and more old houses and streets demolished and paved way for fashionable and weird buildings.
The city of Pingyao has luckily still kept their over 800-year old walled ancient city in Shanxi Province, 800km to the southwest of Beijing.
It can be conveniently reached from Beijing by taking highspeed trains. To have a feeling of an authentic Ming Dynasty vernacular buildings and traditional lifestyle, come to Pingyao!
