Pursuing Pingyao

In the ancient city of Pingyao, a UNESCO site in China‘s Shanxi province, fellow Canadian travel writer Hillary Duff and I went off the beaten path to pursue the world’s best fried chicken and to see if we could find her photo subjects from a previous visit.

I’ve written up the story for La Carte magazine, a Toronto-based publication aiming to help worldly readers travel smarter and travel better:

Daily life in China’s ancient city of Pingyao is just as rich as its UNESCO heritage.

Stay tuned for more stories from me in La Carte, as I recently became their Contributing Editor.

Thanks for the adventure Hillary!

Note: My trip was hosted by the Chinese National Tourism Office, but views here are my own and no one from the office reviewed or approved this article.
