Delicate Pingyao Ancient Town by : Susee Arasu
From Beijing, we were transferred to visit Datong. Honest speaking, Datong is really a nice place that I have never enjoyed. Especially the Pingyao Ancient Town, it is one of China's best-preserved ancient county towns with a history of 2,700 years. I liked the atmosphere very much. Wandering around this holy area, I can taste the ancient atmosphere of Ming and Qing. Tour guide is very responsible giving us much about the background, very interesting!
Eye-opening Trip to Datong by : Gomez Driscoll
Loved this trip to Datong! Everything seemed so different from what we saw in Beijing. The train ride was comfortable and we had a great time on the train. Those days we had in Datong have been great and we both had a lot of fun. Loved the marvelous grottoes the most!
Worth It by : Gerald Hartley
Really glad I did this side trip from Beijing to Datong! Seen something different yet as interesting as what I had seen in Beijing. Loved the grottoes down there and really had a good time and eye-opening experiences! Highly recommend!
