Travel notes of ancient city.

On the vacation in May,my friend and I goes to Pingyao of ancient city of China to go on holidays by car. The ancient city of Pingyao is one of the best preserved ancient cities of the North of China, and that the only our country declares the ancient county town where the cultural heritage of the world succeeds with the whole ancient city at present too.

After driving about 700 kilometers, we had come to the ancient city of this yearning. Get used to past dynasties ancient building of imperial city in Beijing, ancient city here old local trait and exquisite ancient building or deep The ground attracts us.

In this town of the county of Pingyao of about 2.25 sq. km. in area, have kept the buildings in period of Ming and Qing for several hundred years completely. Shop and restaurant on both sides are all buildings in period of Ming and Qing in the street, it decorated local trait of keeping that period with the ornamental capital, seem to make us place oneself in the midst of that era.

I cross the streets lane holding the camera, I had a kind of feeling of recalling history.. I will often meet some local old men and tell history of this ancient city for us, regardless of the street of the ancient city, or will all let me find much subject matter in residents' courtyard ...

Because the glamour of the ancient city, There is a very famous photography festival in China in this ancient city every year.
