Onward travel by train:
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 advance. Train tickets from Pingyao to other cities such as Xi'an, Beijing and Shanghai must be booked from the nearest large city, Taiyuan. The Zhengjia Hostel can help you book your train tickets from Pingyao according to your choice.
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.
We can advise you of the cheapest and most convenient ways to get to where you want to go.
