This is a most interesting village. It has a maze of very narrow streets and staircases to navigate around, and welcoming smiles from the residents. A simply lovely place.

For city dwellers a village like Pingan is great joyful. There are many chickens about. And farm homes on mountain. It's for many tourists to visit with plenty of cafe, hotel, and such. There are long hair ladies who will gladly demonstrate how beautiful their...More

Absolutely beautiful. When you think of pictures of rice paddies clinging to the side of a mountain, this is what you're thinking of. The village is also very picturesque. You can see your tourist dollars at work though. While we were there, some "villagers" were...More

This village seems ancient - it's hard to believe they can sustain a modern lifestyle within this little village. But it seems they do! It was really worth seeing.

Bring your good walking shoes, because you will be walking up the mountain (feels like twenty floors), very narrow passage ways with lots of people walking up and down, beautiful views for awesome pictures and cozy hotels.

How cold is Ping'an village in the winter? I'm studying in Shanghai in the 2016-17 year so I'm unsure about whether to go during the October national holiday, or around Christmas when I can tie it into my trip to Hong Kong. What would people recommend?

Hi All, I am yet to book my flights into China, however looking at flying into the south, then making my way up north after visiting Ping'an Village and surrounds. I have a few questions where I would love some input. a) closest airport/major city where it is easy to gain access to Ping'an Village? b) Transport that is offered, bus system and estimated cost? c) For those who have travelled much of China, any other tranquil destinations that you would recommend, either in the south or north? d) Other areas close by that you would recommend? Thanks in advance guys, I really appreciate your advice. Katherine

Is it possible to leave bulk luggage at the base of Ping An. Is it safe to do so? I believe it is a 20 minute walk up the mountain and not suitable to take suitcases.

There is no issue with taking cases up the steps, as this is done by a group of very strong ladies from the village who charge 40 Yuan for the service, and it is well worth it. I can't see any reason for leaving cases at the... More
