Your Host & The Team


“Ping Yao - one of the most intriguing UNESCO world heritage town- is the only surviving walled city from the Ming and Qing dynasty in Chinese history. Walking around the old town is like stepping into ancient China where local people live the same way for centuries... City planning was done 1500 years ago and remains the same today. Jing's Residence is a restored courtyard residence built 260 years ago, hidden within the city walls.

The house was originally the shop and home of a silk merchant during the Qing Dynasty. Renovated by the famous architect Antonia Ocha, the property combines today the original courtyards with some contemporary touches in the rooms. We take a genuine pleasure in welcoming guests to experience not only a beautiful and comfortable house, but also the charm and the heritage of our History, just like if we were offering a travel back through time. As a member of Secret Retreats, Jing's Residence is more than a hotel, it is a true a journey through a glorious past.”

The Latest Reviews from Our Guests

Thank you for a fabulous time!

We returned from Koh Jum Beach villas two weeks ago now and are still dreaming of being there! Thank you so much for organising our holiday and for answering our endless questions. The accommodation was superb and the island was amazing. Again, thank you for a fabulous time! I will be looking at your website for similar accommodation.

Journey Au Fil du Mekong

Un énorme merci pour l’organisation du voyage. Excellent travail. Tout était parfait: sélection des hôtels, navettes, horaires .. Un petit plus le transfert en jonque entre The Jahan et The Island Lodge! Excellent travail de préparation de votre part. Continuez comme ca.

Review for Kumai

Everything about your company and my cruise was fantastic and the food and kindness of the crew was just unreal.. thank you for offering such a wondrous experience and if you sell those brown Wow Borneo t-shirts the staff was wearing I’d love to buy one and advertise for you in California! I’m going to show all my pics and tell about the trip to all my students ( I’m a high school teacher) and I hope some will be as fortunate as I to take a trip with you. Again, thank you for an unbelievable 4 days.

“Once the home of a silk merchant, this traditional Chinese lifestyle dwelling is located in the centre of a UNESCO World Heritage town, and each of the 14 rooms is set around one of its three courtyards.”

Kim, the discoverer.
