There are electric car inside the ancient town, you can hire one for your family. But when you visit the sites, such as The Wangs Courtyard, the City Wall or other scenic spots, you need to prepare your own wheelchair, and it will be very tired.

NO, no any signs displayed either in English or Chinese. You need to ask the driver or to have other passengers to ask it for you.

Is this station far from our hostel Pingyao Dechang Folks Inn.
Is it easy to find an official taxi there?

Answered by Vanessa from USA | Jul. 29, 2019 19:48

It is about 9km. You can find official taxi outside the station, but maybe it is more convenient if you ask the hostel to pick you up. The hostel is inside the old town, normal taxi may not able to enter there.
