My courtyard oasis was on the quiet edge of the walled city near the north gate, and after a shower and a rest, it was time to explore and find my bearings of this amazingly interesting UNESCO World Heritage site:

As I explored the city, I found its combination of old and new a happy mix, and one that would keep me entertained and engaged about the history and the modernity of Pingyao.
