Tiayuan, Shanxi province is the capital of Shanxi and is on the high speed rail line and close to Pingyao. We went there on business. It is a big manufacturing centre and also has at least one really good university, the Taiyuan Institute of Technology. Also rates a Starbucks cup.
Shanxi Taiyuan is situated in China. This place is not so popular as Xian or other places. Here only locals or some Chinese will visit here.
