I made it up to Ping Yao (平遥), super interesting place. It's one of China's best preserved ancient cities, and it's still functioning too. Me and my two friends slept in traditional style courtyard within the city walls. The place is full of scenic sites but at the same time walking almost anywhere in the city is interesting. It definitely worth the visit; it's very authentic. More pictures to come.
