Introducing Tàiyuán

Tàiyuán is a nice place as far as Chinese cities go, cosmopolitan enough to indulge in modern luxuries, but without the fast-paced rush characteristic of urban conglomerations on the coast. The real reason to spend some time here (instead of immediately hurrying on to Píngyáo or Wǔtái Shān) is the fantastic new Shanxi Museum, opened in 2005 and easily one of China’s best.
