Pingyao not to be missed double Temple
The last day in Shanxi, I chose to go to Pingyao, not to see the ancient city, but for the two ancient temples and the town of Shuanglin, or to continue that a bit of a metaphor for it, if the ancient city of Pingyao is a crown, Shuanglin Temple and Zhenguo Temple are the crown jewels, but most people are in the ancient city of Pingyao Happy, never seen the style of double temple. Of course, this is also related to transportation, the two temples are outside the ancient city, but in the opposite direction, so it is not easy to stroll around!
How to get to Shuanglin Temple?
Fortunately, the bus from Pingyao moving station to the ancient city of 108 Road will go through Shuanglin Temple, but note that 108 is a circular bus, so were to the ancient city of South Gate direction and the direction of the North Gate, only to the North Gate direction of 108 Only reached Shuanglin Temple, so be sure to confirm the driver and the car!
Shuanglin Temple bus station to the station, a glance saw Shuanglin Temple, because it is built on a 3-meter-high earth platform, surrounded by a circle of walls around, it is very special!

Shuanglin Temple is known as Oriental Museum of Art, before I go in the reflection of this title quite normal! But once experienced, I can only say that this is a place where spike electricity! The whole temple a total of more than 1,600 clay, enough to make people dazzled!
The temple is divided into three courtyards, composed of 10 temples.

How to go to Zhen Guosi?
Out of the Shuanglin Si, the next stop is the Temple Town, 108 Road, continue to Pingyao train station, pay attention to the old train station is not moving station! Compared to Shuanglin Temple, the transportation of Zhenguo Temple is quite inconvenient! He is about 13 kilometers from the ancient city, though there are Raiders mentioned can take 9 bus to go, but also said that this is a group of chaotic time bus!
Public transport across from the train station in Pingyao, about twenty minutes, but also nothing, next to Mount's motorcycle has been advised me not to wait, even if the car, not necessarily have a car back, I think it is time or Decided to sit on Mount.
Sitting on Mount before regret it, sitting at noon massage is very sour, had known to drop it!
