Pinglin Old Street
Walking forward from Pinglin Old Street, one will go pass “Pinglin Elementary School” and “Bao Ping Temple” - the key belief of the Pinglin people; the most special part is that the old street is filled with strong tea aroma, attracting many barn swallows to stop for a smell, and swallow nests can be seen in almost all of the surrounding residences, even exceeding the local population, thereby becoming the genuine “Barn Swallow City”.
