Pingyao Things to Do: 113 reviews and 365 photos


By the end of the Qing Dynasty, there were 22 banks in Pingyao, which was unbelievably two thirds of the entire number of banks in China. The Pingyao banks had over 400 offices in 85 cities in China and other countries, with branches even in Russia .

This building is another example of a draft bank . It is very close to the city tower so it probably gets a lot of people exploring it. There are 6 connected but idependent yards.The building is made of brick and wood with a temple on the first floor and offices on the first floor.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
