    Hi ksj,

    1. Paingyao – Mianshan by Taxi
    If you are going to Mianshan from Pingyao by taxi, that means you have to rent a car with driver for most of the day since there are basically no taxis returning from Mianshan back to Pingyao.There are no fixed taxi prices for the car rental with driver from Pingyao to Mianshan and back to Pingyao. My experience tells me that the car rental will cost you about 400 yuan. For better prices, you need to negotiate with a local cab driver.

    2. Alternatively, you first take the bus or the train from Pingyao to Jiexu (介休). From Jiexu County, you take the daily multiple buses from Jiexu to Mianshan.
