Trip Highlights - Pingyao Taiyuan 3 Days Tour is a combo for tourists to understand those two cities deeply. Pingyao lies about 700 km from Beijing and 80 km from the provincial capital - Taiyuan. It used to a financial center of China. Now it is well known for its well preserved ancient city wall, city layout and housing structures in Ming and Qing dynasties. The streets and storefronts still largely retain their historical outlook. Taiyuan, the capital of the Shanxi province, rests in the valley of two mountains, the Taihang Mountain Range to the east, and the Luliang Mountains to the west. Now Taiyuan is one of Chinas heavy industrial cities and accounts for more than half the national coal mining output. Pingyao also has imposing buildings associated with banking.
