With a length of 440 meters, Ming and Qing Street used to be the commercial center of Pingyao ancient city. The street are on abroad, but very well arranged. The numbers of inns, shops, and restaurants has exploded since the late 1990s. Dotted with memorial archways and decorated gateways, stretching one after another and high and low, the old houses and courtyards flanking the streets and lanes remind visitors of the long past and their ancestral places. It is also possible to travel through the streets in the appropriate style by taking a rickshaw ride.
