With the superhushed atmosphere that’s unique to the most exclusive (and expensive) hotels, Jing’s is a soothing blend of old Píngyáo and modern flair that’s squarely aimed at upmarket Western travellers. At 260 years old, the former home of a Qing dynasty silk merchant is sleek and well-finished with polished service from the English-speaking staff.

The themed courtyards are picture-perfect, rooms are elegant and stylish (the vast upstairs suites have views over Píngyáo’s rooftops), while the upstairs bar must be the most sophisticated in all of Shānxī. Its restaurant serves high-priced Western-fusion cuisine. There are only 18 rooms and suites, so it’s essential to book ahead.
