go! : pingyao

April 14, 2013

pingyao is an ancient walled city about 700 km from beijing. it was a bit of a trek to get to and just as smoggy as beijing, but a fun experience overall. we walked half of the city wall, ate plenty of local food (wheat noodles and sauces pictured below) and wandered around the city’s temples. people were friendly and the local beer was pretty good. definitely a place worth devoting a couple days to.
