Beautiful Shanxi (山西)

Shanxi (山西 – “west of the mountains”) is a province located in northern China. You might have never heard about it but we spent a few days there and had the most amazing time! 😄 The province is home to 36m people and is nearly twice the size of Austria.

In this post we’d like to share a few impressions of what we saw in this beautiful part of China.
