Jing’s Residence in Pingyao, China
Jing’s Residence is located in the former mansion of a wealthy Qing dynasty silk merchant, built some 260 years ago, right in the centre of the old town of Pingyao (under UNESCO protection).
The 19 meticulously renovated bedrooms and suites reflect the unique character of the residence. Natural materials create a sophisticated yet relaxing environment. Decorative features range from ancient carved wooden window frames and timber structural elements to bamboo flooring and rice paper ceilings. Many touches pay tribute to local culture and traditional handicrafts: bed heads are made of lacquer or silk; beds provide modern comfort but they recall the design of the age-old kang; decorative clay panels are reminiscent of the shape of coal briquettes and antique Chinese wash-basin stands are completely at home in the luxuriously-fitted bathrooms.
Possible side-trips: Exploring the culture and traditions of Shanxi province, experiencing provincial cuisine that features no less than 260 varieties of noodles and 30 preparation methods.
