Along with Pingyao, this was one of the highlights of our holiday in China. It is claimed to be the largest residential compound in China outside the Forbidden City in Beijing. It is like an enclosed town and covers 62 acres. It was built between...More

We visited Qiao's Family Compound and Wang's Family Compound. Wang's compound is very much larger, less crowded but not as well-maintained at Qiao's. Qiao's have some English write-ups but you can hardly find any in Wang's. Very little information can be found on Wang's family...More

Another well preserved family courtyard to visit in Jinsheng, almost all similar to me. But having heard this one was the biggest among the rest in Shanxi. You must visit the small local village outside this Wang's Compound.

Exploring the massive Wang's compound, full of houses with traditional Chinese architecture, lets you feel as though you're walking back in time. If you're staying in Pingyao city, you can hire your own private taxi for around 100rmb to get you there and back.
