In Lvliang, #Shanxi , an old #town named Qikou which is similar to #PingyaoAncientCity . In #Qikou , you might be surprised by the survived #ShanxiMerchantCulture . The shops, inns, and temples built in the #ancient time had still remained. Which one do you prefer, Qikou or Pingyao?
LǐJIĀSHĀN In this small mountain village people are living in caves for more then 500 years. compare to normal houses they offer far better protection against the freezing winters and hot summers. I also slept for a night in one of the caves. to avoid freezing to death during the night the owner heated the traditional kang stone bed with charcoal. it stinks but keeps you warm 😁 #china #travel #explore #travelling #backpacking #backpacker #traveling #photo #shanxi #qikou #lijiashan #lishi #luliang #caves #cavehouses #desert
The llittle mountainside cave village of LiJiaShan near QiKou in ShanXi Province. My cave was unrestored and came with an exposed mao feng that afforded extensive views! #shanxi #lijiashan #china #mountainvillage #remoteplaces #yellowriver #leicam240 #21mmsummilux #stitchedpanorama #panorama 中国 #山西 #茅房 #qikou

Million dollar smile. Spotted this man cleaning his feet in a bucket at the end of an alleyway and ran down to ask for a photo because his shadow was so dramatic. This one is for all the amazing grandpa's out there, those still with us and those whose memory we hold proudly onto #grandparents #grandpa #shadows #washingoutdoors #qikou #shanxi #china #documentary #onlocation
My dream house would have a courtyard like this filled with plants, lanterns, and maybe a pond with some fisheys and frogs #ancient #courtyard #lanterns #stonecarvings #qikou #shanxi #china #travel #explore #nationalgeographic
I love roads that are made for people and not cars. also reckon that interesting, wonderful, beautiful interactions would be sparked if more people ate dinner on their front step like this #neighbours #community #streetlife #qikou #shanxi #nationalgeographic #documentary #china #onlocation #noodles #travel
This beautiful ancient town was once an important trading point for merchants travelling along the Yellow River #youcanneverhavetoomanylanterns #qikou #shanxi #china #travel #keepexploring

A few kilometers away from Lijiashan is Qikou, a quiet little town located on the banks of the Yellow River
Good morning. JinShang 晋商 used to be a group of rich n clever businessme in Qing Dynasty. While ancient China highly value agriculture but belittle business, only people living close to river port seized the chance n started to do business n made a huge careee coz ancient China only had river shipping /road horse for translortation only. 晋 Jin is the abbreviation of 山西省ShanXi Province, located by Huanghe River 黄河 the most important river in ancient China. In Qing Dynasty, people started to do business n came up a group of clever businessmen, Jin Shang 晋商. n 碛口Qikou once became a prosperous place with its excellent location, but lost its significance with new train transportation etc. While in modern China, QiKou碛口 has been a lost but amazing place due to inconvenient traffic n poor economy. Therefore it hasnt changed much, only senior citizens n little kids are left to guard this awesome place with its original traditional house called Yao Dong 窑洞, which was built in the wall. #碛口 #李家山村 #qikou #history #architecture #窑洞 #YaoDong #House #china 🇨🇳 #real #instagood #instagram #vsco

Far from my usual work, this is one of my all time favourite photos I've made. On top of a small hill in Qikou village, running alongside the famous Chinese Yellow River, the black dragon temple (XuanlongSi) stands. First created to praise the local gods, and the black dragon was thought to protect the town. This beautiful building is one of many in the fascinating town of Qikou, Shanxi province. On a long exposure the walls are stained red by the local hotel lights, creating a striking image against a starry sky. #lonelyplanet #lpmi #awesomeearth #travel #explore #travelphotography #temple #nightscape #blackdragon #china #yellowriver #qikou #XuanlongSi #asia #nightphotography #holy
A roof of the cave dwelling near Qikou. At its heyday, Qikou town near Yellow river was a important business port. Many wealthy merchants in the town arranged for their families to stay in nearby hills rather than in the town. Maybe they thought it was safer. #Qikou #cave #dwelling #roof #Shanxi #China #碛口 #窑洞 #屋顶 #山西
day 12: lijiashan cave dwellings constructed into the mountain face in order to leave valuable fertile soil by the yellow river for agriculture // #alongtherivers #xjetterz #travel #summer #landscape #mountain #lijiashan #qikou #shanxi #china #rural #view #architecture #travelgram #idargotravel #guardiancities #construction #village
"Bouffée". Souvenir d'un voyage dans la campagne chinoise.
I came across these two at the dragon temple in #qikou #shanxi #china , it was early morning and he was just setting up but was delighted to play some tunes for me, was so good to hear Chinese folk songs played with a traditional instrument. You can hear a recording I took at www.psgoneexploring.com/soundcheck. #music #folksong #chinese #travel #recording
