Just in the center of town this tower is seen from every spot . Closed to the public . Pagoda design with a few floors . Under it goes the most beautiful street of the old city .

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.

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.

Unfortunately, the tower is closed for visiting, becuse it is very old and they want to preserve it against damage. You can only admire it from the outside, being underneath it or in front or at the back of it (it changes depending where you...More

Right in the centre of walled city, where north, west, east and south streets meet, alas, you can no longer enter the tower and climb for views, but it's still worth seeing as you stroll through the hectic busy streets. A great piece of architecture...More

This should be a part of any trip to Pingyao. Doesn't take long, and offers a lovely view of the main streets. Recommended.
