Pingyao Ancient City – Part Two Posted by on May 5, 2011 in Culture, history, sightseeing, travel

For our second day in Pingyao, we had a nice balance of learning and fun, thanks to the multitude of museums and temples scattered throughout the city and the various games and shops that surround them. Join me on this video journey to see the City God temple, a Taoist temple the Confucius temple, and the Martial Arts Museum. In between, take pit stops to goof around with street games, munch on delicious local food, and even do some shopping.
