Jing's Residence

    Jing's Residence is a stunning boutique hotel in the ancient walled city of Pingyao, Shanxi province in China, which is roughly north eastern China. The city itself is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and still remains a very beautiful traditional city of China. Jing's Residence is located in a former mansion of a wealthy Qing dynasty silk merchant.

The market tower in Pingyao, built in the 14th century.

All the rooms look amazing, this hotel is actually my idea of heaven. There are courtyards within the hotel where you can drink teas, there's a spa and on the second floor there is a bar and library which has beautiful roof top views.

I came across this hotel when I was reading through the articles of an American freelance journalist  who reports in China, Hong Kong and Taiwan. I am so jealous of his lifestyle in China and his opportunities to visit these amazing places, this is definitely where I'd like to see myself in about 10 years time.
