China - Shanxi (Chapter)
This is the Shānxī chapter from Lonely Planet’s China guidebook.

Basing yourself here and jumping to Píngyáo’s surrounding sights is practically all you need. You’ll encounter time-worn temples, traditional Qing-dynasty courtyard architecture and some of the warmest people in the Middle Kingdom.
- wander the cobblestone ancient streets of time-warped Píngyáo
- explore the grandeur of the Buddhist statues at the Yúngāng Caves
- go subterranean at the fascinating Zhāngbì Underground Castle
- restaurants & accommodation
