A Romantic Place, Overpass Notwithstanding

A walk back through history.

Wandering along the paved alleyways of dangjiacun is like taking a stroll through history, as the architectural style in this sleepy little village has remained mostly unchanged for the past few hundred years.Located about 10km from the city center of han

A wonderful side trip during our visit to Xi'an

While we were visiting Xi'an, we decided to take a trip to Hancheng, around 140 miles away on the West bank of the Yellow River, and it was well worth the trip. Hancheng, with a history dating back 3,000 years, was called "Mini Beijing" during the Qianlon

Modern Hancheng will not win any beauty prizes, but the town does have a number of historical monuments that are worth your time. Indeed, the town makes a good stopover between Xian and Pingyao, though few tourists seem to stop by at present.The best of t

The view is worth the climb

The stone carvings are amazing... The climb to the tomb itself is difficult and very step. My mum waited at the bottom at 85 way to hard. Would not be suitable for small kids either. The views where spectacular. The tomb itself very interesting.
