Nice Places between Pingyao and Xian.

Jump to last reply

I am planning to spend a few days in Pingyao in April; travelling from Beijing via Taiyuan by D and K trains. After that we intend going to Xian by day train.

The journey is about ten hours, so we would like to break it into two or three parts.

I am seeking advice of pleasant towns on that route which would be nice for a senior English-speaking couple (no Chinese beyond the basic civilities) to spend a few relaxed days in. If they have a local historic or scenic attraction, that would be a bonus. We would need a hotel with Western en-suite toilets but would prefer smaller not-too-modern towns to the big polluted cities.

The possible rail stops en-route are:

Jiexiu
Lingshi
Huozhou
Hongdong
Linfen
Houma
Wenxi
Yuncheng
Yongji
Jishan
Hejian
Hancheng
Fenglingdu
Huashan
Weinan

TIA, Cheers, Alan
