Get a Glimpse of China's Turn-of-the-Century WealthIf you feel like you're on a movie set during your visit to the picturesque Shi Family Grand Courtyard, that's because you are. But this is no backlot sound studio—it's the real thing. Built in the 1800s, the Shi Family earned its wealth through grain importing and sales, and built a mega complex of beautiful, stately buildings. Antique furnishings, well-maintained grounds, and a museum of Yangliuqing wood carving paintings are all worth at least a half-day's tour from the city center.
