Everyone thinks that Shanxi merchant culture is in Qiao's courtyard. In fact, Pingyao ancient city is the birthplace of Shanxi merchant culture. This is a world cultural heritage. The national AAAAA classic, the ancient city is free of money. You can visit it for several days, and the consumption is not high. There are only 22 scenic spots to charge for admission fees, 130 tickets, 120 delegations, mainly banks, bodyguards, chambers of Commerce and so on. If you don't want to go in, you can rush to culture without buying tickets. We must go in, because the culture of Shanxi businessmen is nothing more than the courtyards of money banks, bodyguard bureaus, chambers of Commerce and all kinds of wealthy people. Money banks will have a large number of channels for the circulation of funds, so as to derive the rudiment of the modern financial industry, the bodyguard Bureau will have a real Wulin mountain head, the rudiment of the modern logistics and armed escort will be derived, the Chamber of Commerce will have management and rules, the modern industrial and commercial management departments and industry associations will be derived, there will be a variety of rich people's courtyards need to guard all kinds of maintenance, and the modern generation will be derived. The property industry and the rudiments of various receipt and dispatch rooms, all of which started more than 2700 years ago, Shanxi merchants culture stretches for thousands of years, and indeed has its thick and essence.
I belong to the freedom of travel, personally feel that traffic is necessary to tell you, as long as the train to Pingyao booking inn, the boss will go to pick up, then the hotel is called Deyichang, the landlady is refreshing, do things dependably. The inn is only 50 meters away from Nanjie Street. It's very convenient for me to travel. I have enough time to walk down the whole ancient city scenic spot for half a day. Shanxi vinegar is famous. The honey vinegar in my mother's vinegar house is my personal favorite, but 301 Jin is a little expensive. It's good to buy vinegar. I think 9.8 yuan is acceptable. There is a silver jewelry shop in the east of Nanjie Street. There are many unique styles, not dozens of ordinary goods that can be compared. Because of fate, I visited the ancient city one day and entered this shop three times. As for the bar, there are 50 bottles of Budweiser beer. If you like the environment, you can sit and feel it. Want to Wangjia Courtyard or Hukou Falls, Inn owners can generally arrange carpooling, to Wangjia Courtyard one person 50, must ask whether to take the high-speed, otherwise the time will be long, and when you come back, you will charge two extra high-speed fees, money is not a problem, the key is time! Personally, I think the Wangjiayuan is worth it.~
Pingyao Ancient City does not need tickets, but if you want to go to the city wall or any silver number or county office, you need to buy a set of tickets. The ancient city seems to be a small commodity distribution center. Every street and lane sells goods, which is full of commercial flavor. I have been to Zhouzhuang, Dayan, Shuhe, Phoenix, Anchang, Yunshui Ballads. In fact, almost all of these ancient cities have been commercialized, and the Yunshui ballad is relatively primitive.
Pingyao Ancient City: Pingyao Ancient City is located in Pingyao County, central Shanxi Province. It is a national 5A tourist attraction. The ancient city of Pingyao was built in the reign of Xixuanwang (827-782 B.C.). It is one of the four most well-preserved ancient cities in China (the other three are Langzhong, Lijiang and Shexian), and it is also an outstanding example of Chinese Han nationality cities in the Ming and Qing Dynasties. The ancient city of Pingyao is bounded by the city wall. The style inside and outside the city wall is quite different. The streets, city buildings, County offices, shops and bodyguard bureaus in the city retain the original appearance of the Ming and Qing Dynasties. Outside the wall is a new town, a modern building. The ancient buildings in the city and the modern buildings outside the city are integrated and reflect each other, forming a beautiful picture scroll of the ancient city, which is amazing.
Pingyao Ancient City has East, West, North and South Streets, South Street is a street of Ming and Qing Dynasties, overcrowded. The West Street was very broken. It came out of the railway station and passed by the inn. It was too early to open the door. It felt like the house was going to collapse. Our inn is on East Street. It's quiet in the evening. We have an early stand when we go out. North Street leads to the bus stop. Only the North Gate and the South Gate can be accessed to the ancient city wall. There are 130 tickets in the whole city. A scenic spot can only be visited once, from 8:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Battery cars are everywhere in the ancient city. Without asking how much they cost, they seem to be able to go to many streets in the form of Chartered cars. In fact, just go to the main streets. Many streets are residents, and there is nothing to see.
The ancient city is very beautiful. It has its own advantages in day and night. In fact, when you enter the ancient city, you can see the old buildings. Although there are many new and archaized buildings, they are still interesting. Non-holiday accommodation is also cheap, and do not need to book online, there are many residential accommodations in the city, we live in Yongsheng Garden landlord Tukang room, 1301, too affordable, 10 yuan per person for breakfast, full, it is recommended not to eat breakfast in the hotel, go out to eat some snacks. There are some toll-free scenic spots in the ancient city, such as county hall, city wall, etc. The set ticket is free for the old people aged 130 and over 60. If they are not interested, they can not enter the toll-free scenic spots. There are a lot of electric sightseeing cars, which can be bargained. Six of us gave 100. All the attractions arrived. The car stopped at the door and waited for the final payment. But this car will pull the guests to two shopping places. One is the handmade vinegar shop, the other is the courtyard where lacquerware is sold. You can visit it without buying anything.
Recently, I often see some moving words on the Internet, "I'm waiting for you in Pingyao", "Goodbye, Pingyao" and then "See Pingyao again", which makes outsiders feel excited and arouses an impulse to go to Pingyao immediately. This business trip to Taiyuan, Pingyao naturally became the first. Looking at Qiao's courtyard and Pingyao's ancient city, I felt that all the places where the rich people lived in the past were connected with "money". Fortunately, there is no money in this world. Pingyao Ancient City does not need tickets, but the Linlian Ticket is 130 yuan. Qiao's courtyard and Jinci Temple seem to be 80 yuan. This ticket to Shanxi is not cheap. Pingyao Ancient City Tourist Area is together with the local residential areas, and the local resident population is 45,000. Ancient city consumption level is not high, the price is reasonable, you can walk around the streets, there are also options to take battery cars, which will cost money to buy tickets. The scenic spots in the ancient city are mostly courtyard shops along the street, front and rear stores, exclusive courtyards, ticket numbers, bodyguards and money banks. It is said that in the middle of the Qing Dynasty, Pingyao ancient city was also called "China's Wall Street". It can be seen that the prosperity of the time, I personally played down, to two places are more optimistic, one is the underground treasury of Qingqianzhuang, the other is Pingyao County Yao, the ancient county Yao is the judiciary and justice. The organ of administrative unification, Yamen is indeed open to the south. When it arrived, a sitcom was being staged in the lobby of the county Yamen. Unfortunately, the performance was almost over, and only the word "withdraw from the hall" was heard. When I left Pingyao, I was full of regret that I couldn't watch Pingyao ancient city in the evening. Fortunately, I had a meal of Pingyao beef, which was really beautiful.
Pingyao Ancient City is a famous cultural city with a history of more than 2700 years. It is also known as the four most well-preserved famous cities in China, together with Langzhong in Sichuan, Lijiang in Yunnan and Shexian in Anhui. The city was designed by Liu Bowen according to the shape of the tortoise, which implies a firm and lasting meaning. Southern Street shops in the ancient city are numerous, which controlled more than 50 (%) of the financial institutions in the whole country during the Qing Dynasty. It is known as the "Wall Street" of China. Rishengchang is the first ticket number in China and is praised by Mr. Yu Qiuyu as the founder of all kinds of banks in China. Pingyao County Ya, the ancient city walls are worth seeing. I strongly recommend "See Pingyao again" this performance, step-by-step scenes, in which the audience participates, is very shocking.
The ancient city pool, the simple Jinzhong folk custom, stayed in Pingyao Guild Hall for one night, the Guild Hall itself is the old building has its own characteristics. At the beginning of the lantern, with the loud cry of old Sir (although not understand but very enthusiastic), the night market opened, the local snacks are too many and cheap. In the late Qing Dynasty, the ancient city of Pingyao was already very prosperous. Now it has become more commercialized as a scenic spot, but it still retains the charm of the ancient city, which is very rare. The ancient city is well preserved. Ancient buildings are everywhere. There are many things to see. It is suitable to stop and savor carefully. I hope I can see Pingyao again.
