China travel guide

China - Shanxi (Chapter)

14th Edition May 2015

This is the Shānxī chapter from Lonely Planet’s China guidebook.

Waist-deep in handsome history, Shānxī has a plethora of interesting sights. Most travellers start with the walled city of Píngyáo. 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
  • maps
  • explore the grandeur of the Buddhist statues at the Yúngāng Caves
  • transport
  • go subterranean at the fascinating Zhāngbì Underground Castle
  • restaurants & accommodation

Coverage includes: Dàtóng & around, Wǔtái Shān, Tàiyuán, Píngyáo & around, Qìkǒu, and Jìnchéng & around.
