It consists of a front courtyard, a middle courtyard, a side courtyard and a back courtyard. The spacious lobby also functions as a restaurant where you can have dinner, or take a rest, or surf the internet by our 5 fast-connection computers free of charge. Our restaurant can provide both Chinese and western food at a reasonable price. And all yards in our guesthouse are decorated with plants and flowers. In our back courtyard, there is a quiet area for our guests to enjoy reading, drinking etc.

Pingyao's architecture and city wall are an excellent example of Ming and Qing Dynasty city planning. It is a wonderful place to wander around and discover the everyday life of the city's residents. Pingyao has a number of attractions you should not miss. An all-inclusive ticket (120 rmb) allows access to 19 sites, museums and the city wall (concessions for over 65s, and free for 70+). The entrance ticket is good for two days.

As Pingyao is a very small, ancient town, there is no Bank China here. So you had better prepare enough cash for your stay. There is an ATM outside the West Gate. It is very difficult to book hard or soft sleeper train tickets at Pingyao Railway Station. However, Tian Yuan Kui guesthouse can assist you in booking your train tickets from Pingyao to the destination of your choice.

If you prefer to have a tour guide, we can arrange a reputable and honest English-speaking tour guide for you. On the other hand, if you prefer to travel independently, then we can advise you on the cheapest and most convenient ways to get to where you want to go.

Shuanlin temple, about 6 kilometers away, is also a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site. In this temple, there are more than 2,000 painted sculptures.

Qiao's Family Courtyard is about 40 kilometers away. It was the home of a powerful trading family with significant commercial influence stretching beyond Shanxi Province. It was in this mansion that the famous film 'Raise the Red Lantern', directed by Zhang Yimou, was made. The complex is fortified by a 10 meter high wall. It is now one of the most popular tourist attractions around Pingyao.

Another popular site is Wang's Family Courtyard. It is about 60 kilometers away. This was the Wang clan's private residence and is four times larger than Qiao's, with 123 courtyards and 1,118 rooms. The mansion, which is located in the hills, took over half a century to build. It is the largest private mansion in China.

If you want to go to these sites, we can arrange a taxi to take you there at a low price.

If you tell us the number of your train beforehand, we can arrange a car to collect you from the station free of charge. We can also offer free pick up for you in modernday Pingyao outside the walls.

We can also arrange to pick you up from the nearest airport at Taiyuan-about 1.5-2 hours away-for a reasonable price.

We sincerely wish that you enjoy your stay here in Pingyao!
