Landmark in Pingyao... You can't miss it... It is a standout
Oct 2019
It does take over most of the area of the ancient city. It towers over the city. It is nicely decorated.

Nice Photo Op

It's basically a well preserved pagoda in the middle of town. Nice place to take a few photos and have a bite to eat since there were some interesting nearby restaurants.

Just a photo op

The tower is near the centre of town. It’s on a busy street with lots of shops. It wasn’t possible to climb the tower when we were there.

The bank with the vault is just outside. A fairly good restaurant is also just nearby.

Good photo spot.

Just another pagoda really. It marks the centre of the city and you can't miss it as you walk down Qing Ming street

You cannot miss it

This tower is in the centre of town and contributes to the old atmosphere in Pingyao. When I was there, it was closed for the public, but you can walk under it. It is on the mainstreet and you cannot miss it.

Symbol of city
Oct 2017
This old city surrounded with beautiful wall along with with Gushi Tower is the icon and most important witness of this beautiful town which has lost the essence of their authenticity as it has happened in many beautiful towns and villages of the world due to mass tourism , but there is still time
to lead it to a future artistic and conservative, that doesn't mean that the commercial step allow natural and elegant, because surplus to this ideal village art. At the foot of the Tower on the left and right by the stairs are located on both sides, two antique shops that sell real trifles of the old china, like a sculpture carved in wood by a group of Chinese children interlaced sculptural, playing to jump, beautiful scene of everyday life. On the other hand the Tower also indicates the geographical point of the village as a point of reference between alleys all equal and difficult to find.

Centre of town, centre of action

This is the centre of the action so things are most vibrant here. Admire the architecture of the tower. Surely you will have to visit here.

Nice photo spot

This is the center of town and a place to orient (no pun intended) yourself. Good picture and some shade.

If you visit the city, you will for sure make your way to this tower. You can't go up inside it, but you can see the incredible old architecture. For a refreshing break from the heat- stop in at iTea just south of the tower.
