Exploring the massive Wang's compound, full of houses with traditional Chinese architecture, lets you feel as though you're walking back in time. If you're staying in Pingyao city, you can hire your own private taxi for around 100rmb to get you there and back.

A good day-trip from Pingyao, reachable within an hour or so, the Wang Family Compound is effectively a village built for a single family and their relatives in the Qing Dynasty (18th Century). It contains at least 200 courtyards that range from the spartan to...More
