Driving the British vintage car, Clive Raven and his wife Gillian arrived in Pingyao on July 9 via Datong from Beijing.

The old couple had a dream traveling around the world, so they bought the car and restored it in 2008, and then they started their tour.

About a month ago, the British couple set off for China from the UK. They traveled through France, Germany, Poland and Russia, and finally arrived in China on July 4.

"We chose traveling with a vintage car because I took it as a journey, not simply a vacation or holidays. I want my journey more memorable." said Mr. Raven.
