Pingyao Things to Do: 113 reviews and 365 photos


I would like you to stay at the old style hotel instead of at the modernized building. The architecture of the old style hotel keeps the traditional construction ways and normally is one floor bunglow or 2 stories low building. I do recommend you reserving the room with heating facility named " Kang". A traditional heating method used in China instead today's bed. " Kang" is earth and brick construction which has channel internally, the heated air from furnace is introduced into the channel of Kang to heat it.

You will feel especally warm staying on Kang, but do remember to prepare a cup of water beside you since you will feel thirsty next morning after one night as cake on the pan.

Address: Old style hotel at the town
Directions: Xi Da Jie; Dong Da Jie; Cheng Huang Miao Jie
