... Chinese architecture following the rules of fengshui. More than 300 sites in or near the city have ancient ruins. Preserved Ming- and Qing-style residences number close to 4,000. Pingyao had a burst of prosperity starting in the early 19th century when it became a national banking centre, originating the use of bills of exchange or cheques in China.

... and another 70,000 outside the walls. About 70% of the economy here is tourism.
