Pingyao Food Walking Tour

1 review
Put away the guidebooks and online reviews and get dinner with a local on this evening walking tour through Pingyao. In your small group, follow your guide around the city streets at night and visit street food stalls, eateries, restaurants and more, sampling snacks and delicacies native to Shanxi province. Eat enough for a full dinner without stressing about whether you’ve made the right choice.

We loved strolling this fabulously colorful and interesting ancient city that was the banking capital of China. It was fun to stroll the old streets of this city and visit the food stalls, vinegar stores, restaurants, etc.

We were recommended Pingyao by our agent as a pre Beijing stay as we wanted something more historic and this was perfect. We flew into Taiyoan airport then taxi to Pingyao and took the fast train back to beijing. I would prefer to train both ways. It was amazing and lots to see and do and very interesting history as it was where the banks were originally formed

We loved exploring the old streets of Pingyao. It reminded us a little of our experiences in Bhaktapur and Fes, with the old narrow lanes, beautiful temples and imposing walls. The main street or two are quite commercial, and filled with tourists on teh weekend, but you do get plenty of eateries, second hand shops and coffee etc. Take a walk one or two streets form the main area and you are immersed in the local life much more. It's a beautiful at every turn.

Is a beautiful old town. We went to Pingyao Gucheng Railway Station, took the bus 1 yuan per person to Pingyao South gate. We asked the bus driver about the information to go Zhangbi and Wang's Compound. The bus driver was very friendly introduced us to hire a 7 seater private car 280 yuan( cheaper than booking through hotel) a day tour to Zhangbi Castle, Wang's Compound and Shuanglin Temple then dropped us at the Pingyao Gucheng Railway Station. We booked the tour with him on the bus. He was so kind to stopped bus near south gate, came down the bus, went across the road to show us the direction to walk to south gate. Our hotel near the south gate. Pingyao is an old city, it is very beautiful. We bought the ticket inside the south gate on the right. Spent 5 hours to visit the town and went up the city wall at 4.30pm. Walk around about 1 hour. From the city wall can see all old houses and roofs which is much more beautiful than Xian city wall scenery ( all new building). We bought the Youjian Pingyao show ticket at the shop on left of the south Gate (direction coming from outside the gate), this shop give discount tickets.
