This former bank is now a museum to banking in Pingyao that was the banking capitol of China. At one point the bank had 33 branches. Banking center from 1823 to 1932 and introduced paper money in 1920.

Amazing countyard, like a wealthy family. You could learn a lot about Chinese banking system from it and very impressive for its successful story back to 200 years ago. Piaohao is another name in China ancent history for the bank.

You don't get them like this any more! Interesting to see how they traded in the old days, how they lived and partied.....and how they managed to trade all across China - no mean feat then!

As part of our Pingyo walking tour we went to the bank- was amazed at how it all started here in China. Old photos and relics helped acknowledge Pingyaos part in China's banking history

While the wealth of Pingyao was founded on the banking system established here, a bank is still a bank. A quick tour of the inside is enough to show you how an old bank looked, complete with life sized mannequins and descriptions of the silver that passed through here and the draft system. Better to spend time on the city walls and wandering through the old city.

Not my typical museum but was pleasantly surprised. Lovely old furniture, and layout just as it was 100 years ago. Worth a visit.

Nice stop of you have one hour and are interested by the way the ancient Chinese bankers kept their values. It is worth to see it once. The explanations in English and French are sometimes misleading so it is better with a guide.

This was the first privately owned bank in China. There are numerous examples of how the bank operated and what the offices were like and how they catered for their customers
