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 Hotel Reservation
Unlike other big cities rife with big and luxury hotels, Pingyao features small guesthouses and hotels, most of them offering around 20 some rooms. Almost all hotels in Pingyao are built on the traditional courtyards, old houses typical in the northern China.

These old courtyards turned guesthouses and hotels are a big draw for foreign travelers, drinking tea or coffee in a cozy courtyard, sleeping on stone beds ( Stone Kang Beds), and buried in traditional Chinese atmosphere. There are aroudn 20 courtyard turned guesthouses and hotels available for your choose.

If you don't like the idea of sleeping on stone kang beds and prefer enjoying a deluxue hotel with modern facilities, Pingyao will not let you disappointed. The Kylin Grand Hotel is a 5 star hotel with spacious rooms equipped with luxury facilities.

While choosing a hotel in Pingyao, basically people would consider three factors – Location, Service and price.

All the rooms offer stone kang beds with wooden bed top tea tables. The owners of the guesthouse, husband and wife speak good English.

3. Kylin Grand Hotel 平遥麒麟阁大饭店
This luxury modern hotel is located at No.76, Chenghuang Temple Street in Pingyao Ancient City, adjacent to the City God Temple and Confucious Temple.

It is a boutique Hotel with its theme focused on the local Jin commercial culture in Ming and Qing dynasties. Its Ming and Qing style building well matches the theme.

Pingyao Ancient City Layout
The ancient city wall of Pingyao is 6km in circumference, like a smaller Xian city wall which has a perimeter of 14 km. The similarity of the two ancient cities also lies in their street grid pattern layout featuring four main streets in the two walled cities, e.g. North Street, East Street, South Street and West Street. Each street is linked to a gate. One of Pingyao Ancient City's unique features is that it is not square in shape. Actually the whole city leans to the northwest and its "North" is replaced by "Northwest". So all the lanes and streets slant.

South Street
The south and west streets in Pingyao ancient city are most important, rife with souvenir stalls, restaurants, hostels, hotels as well as major attractions. The tallest City Building in Ming & Qing Style is situated on the middle of the south street.

On the south street, you find Tong Xing Gong Armed Escort Agency, Chinese Armed Escort Agency Museum, Xie Tong Qing Draft Bank. Some popular hotels are also located on the south street, like Tian Yuan Kui Hotel and Harmony Guesthouse.

West Street
The must see Ri Sheng Chang (the First Draft Bank of China) is on the west street. Yun Jin Cheng Hotel, a five star folk-custom hotel is on the west street too.

Chenghuang Temple Street
This interesting street is not missed. On the street you are able to visit City God Temple ( Chenghuang Temple ) and Confucius Tempe. The 5 star Kylin Grand Hotel is also on the street.

Yamen Street
West of Chenghuang Temple Street is Yamen Street. Yamen literally means " the bureaucrat" that refers to the local government. On the street is located the former Pingyao County Government's office compound, a well-preserved county-level government offices in China. Zhengjia Guesthouse is on Yamen Street.

North Street
Actually the North Street is not directly linked to the South Street. North Street starts somewhat west from West Street, also a busy and commercial street lined up with some hotels and restaurants.

East Street
A bit less commercial other streets. But still you could find nice cafes and restaurant on the East Street. Of course, Pingyao Ancient City boasts more these above mentioned streets with numerous lanes radiating from the main streets, worth your exploring a few hours.

Generally it is preferable to choose a hotel in South Street, West Street, Yaman Street or Chenghuang Temple Street. Now I'd like to recommend one guesthouse ( stone kang beds) , one hotel ( stone kang beds) and one luxury hotel ( modern standard room ).
