The Qiao Family Courtyard House was the home of a powerful trading family with significant commercial influence even beyond Shangxi. It was in this mansion that Zhang Yimou's famous film Raise the Red Lantern was filmed. Located some 20km north of Pingyao, the compound is fortified behind a 10m high wall. It is now one of the most popular tourist attractions in Pingyao. Another popular site is the Wang Family Courtyard House. This was the Wang clan's private residence and is four times larger than Qiao's, with 54 courtyards and 1,052 rooms. The mansion took over half a century to build and is located on a hilly area.

Pingyao is a very small, ancient town. Because of this, it is impossible to book hard or soft sleeper train tickets at the Pingyao Railway Station less than 10 days in advanced if you plan to book yourself. Train tickets from Pingyao to other cities such as Xi'an, Beijing, and Shanghai must be booked from the nearest large city, Taiyuan. The Yide guesthouse Property can assist you in booking your train tickets from Pingyao to the destination of your choice.
