We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Pingyao Qiao Family Courtyard
Located at Qiaojiabao Village, Qixian, Qiao Family Courtyard used to be the capitalist Qiao Zhiyong’s old house. Qiao Zhiyong was a well-known business man of Shanxi province in Qing Dynasty. It was first built in during Emperor Qianlong’s reign in the Qing Dynasty, but added and repaired for several times during the reign of Emperor Tongzhi and Guangxu in the Qing Dynasty and in 1921.

It was a Chinese old residential courtyard with an area of more than 8,000 square meters. Its overall arrangement was well-knit and its architecture was exquisite, regular as well as changeable. The courtyard is composed of six yards, with 19 smaller yards and 313 rooms. All the buildings in the courtyard are of exquisite style, and show their originality. Brick carvings inside the courtyard can be seen everywhere, and carvings in the ridges, walls, screens and balusters of the house are of different characteristics. Qiao Courtyard fully demonstrates the unique style of folk buildings in the Qing Dynasty. As an art treasure, it now serves as a folklore museum, displaying the historical materials, Qiaojia treasures, business customs, daily etiquette and customs, folk workmanships, farming and plowing customs in “Zaizhongtang” and so on.

People who visited the yard have same feeling that “imperial family won the Imperial Palace, ordinary people only own Qiaojia”.
