Shanxi Field Trip

Recently, 27 GBBNer's went to Shanxi Pingyao for a three-day summer field trip. Shanxi is one of the birth places of Chinese civilizations with a long history and traditional culture. As early as one hundred million years ago, the ancestors of the Chinese lived and propagated in this region. Legend tells us that the Yellow Emperor, founder of the Chinese nation, once lived in Shanxi for a certain period. Shanxi is endowed with an abundance of cultural sites from its long history. Most of the ancient structures were built before the Liao and Song Dynasties. Shanxi is often called the 'Chinese Ancient Architecture Museum'.
