Main Attractions for this tour:
Jinci TempleYungang Grottoes: Yungang Grottoes is the three main sites in China that are famous for their stone sculpture are Dunhuang, Longmen and Yungang. Among these, the Yungang grottoes are considered first among equals, for their tremendous size, ancient history, and relatively complete state of preservation. Carved during the Northern Wei Dynasty(460-524), there are over 1,100 niches with about over 51, 000 statues.
Huayan Temple: Built during the Liao Dynasty (907 - 1125), the Huayan Temple is the largest and best preserved Buddhist temple of the Liao Dynasty in existence in China.
Nine Dragon Screen: Built over 600 years ago, it is presently the oldest and largest glazed screen in China today. It is three times larger than that in Beihai Park.

Hanging Temple: Built more than 1,400 years ago, Hanging temple was built into a cliff near Mount Heng. About 40 buildings survived are scattered halfway up the mountain on the cliff face or slopes, from 26 to 50 meters above the foot of the mountain. This temple includes Buddhist, Taoist, and Confucian elements in the same temple.
Yingxian Wooden Pagoda: It is the oldest and tallest wooden pagoda in the world and was built in 1056 during Liao Dynasty. The Wooden Pagoda was made entirely of wooden parts joined by innumerable mortises and tenons in a complicated structure of brackets, without using any nails. The octagonal pagoda is one of the few surviving examples of a Song-Dynasty pagoda, rich in detail, dynamic in bracketing, and noble in proportion.

Jinci Temple: It was built in the Bei Wei Dynasty (386-534) in memory of Shuyu, the second son of Zhouwu kingdom. The temple is a famous garden of ancient buildings, in compound with hall, pavilions, and towers. The cypress, the long-life Spring and the painted clay figures of maids in the Saintly Mother's Hall are reputed as Jinci Temple's 'three wonders'.
Courtyard of Family Qiao: It was built as residential compound in 1756 in the Qing dynasty by the financier Qiao Zhiyong. The courtyard is one of the finest remaining examples of imposing private residences in northern China. It is a totally-enclose castle-like building. There are 6 large courtyards consisting of 20 small courtyards, 313 rooms in total. Shanxi Qi County Folk Museum is also set here.


Ancient City of Pingyao: With a history of more than 2700 years, Pingyao Ancient City is the most complete ancient city preserved in China. It is the the prototype of China's ancient county in the Ming and Qing Dynasties. The city is a large ancient architectural complex including city walls, streets, stores, temples and dwellings. It was the merchant center with the nation's earliest bank established in the 19th century.
Shuanglin Temple: Shuanglin Temple is a Buddhist temple with 1,500 years history since the North Wei Dynasty. Occupying 15,000 square meters, the temple comprises 10 big and small halls.
