For a slice of classic China look no further than the ancient walled town of Pingyao, possibly the best-preserved in the country. We know the secret is out but with its multitude of alleyways, impressive watchtowers, and imposing city walls, the UNESCO World Heritage listed old town of Pingyao is still a brilliant place for independent wandering and a good bit of people-watching. For a view of the cobbled streets and grey-slate rooftops, there’s no better spot that the City Tower – muscle in among the selfie-sticks, look down and snap away. For people-watching, just stand anywhere, this is, after all, China!
