Package Itinerary

Our guide will pick you up at the lobby of your hotel at around 09:00 in the morning. You will be escorted to the well-known Wang Family's Compound in around 1.5 hours ride. It is a large and magnificent architectural complex originally built around 250 years ago. This luxurious residence was originally built during 1762-to 1811 by the descendants of the Wang Family.

What makes this compound so impressive are the sheer size and gorgeous ornamental structures. It is like a mini-walled city with more than 200 courtyards, each of which has its own distinctive features. The intricately carved wood doors, window casings, stairways, stone carvings, etc. could be found everywhere in the courtyards.

Lunch is on your own arrangement, and you can seek advice from our guide.

In the afternoon, the tour continues to Zhangbi Ancient Fortress where you will go through the maze-like underground tunnels. To resist the invasion of enemies, Chinese ancestors made full use of its geographic advantages and built a 10,000-meter long underground military tunnel with three floors in the village. Zhangbi Ancient Fortress is a complex of historical relics, tombs, residences, and tunnels, in which the labyrinth-like underground tunnels are the most interesting.

After that, we will drive you back. On the way, you will pay a visit to Shuanglin Temple, which is different from many other temples for it still maintains its very old character. It is one of the three treasures of Pingyao, having been included in the World Heritage List by UNESCO in 1997.

After the visits, we will drive you back to your hotel or see you off at Pingyao Railway Station.
