Autumn and winter are the best times to visit this ancient town. In autumn, there are not only sunny days with a pleasant temperature but also there is the China Pingyao International Photography Festival during mid September; in winter, although it is quite cold, the snow covered Pingyao Old City has its own charming view. The time around Chinese New Year is also a good time for travelers. The Shehuo Festival here may give you a brand new impression of Chinese Spring Festival.
