Shanxi, a province west of the Taihang Mountains and east of the Yellow River, has played witness to over 5,000 years of civilization. Looking back in history, the answer to the origin of China can be found here.

By integrating culture and tourism, Shanxi is gradually becoming a world-renowned tourist destination.

Pingyao Ancient City is one of the best preserved ancient cities in China. The Pingyao International Photography Exhibition and Pingyao Film Exhibition have helped established Shanxi's reputation in the world. A series of cultural, artistic and roots-seeking activities held every year has attracted tourists from around the world.

Wutai Mountain is one of the four famous Buddhist mountains in China. The Yungang Grottoes have gone through over a thousand years of change, leaving a great treasure trove of carving art for China and the world.
