Traveller Reviews of: 4 Days Beijing Datong Round Trip (Overnight Train)
Written by: Guadalupe Rivera ★★★★★ Added: 2014-05-07

Loved the city of Datong and it is a really fun place to go. Really enjoyed a wonderful time in the city and a pleasant train ride from Beijing to Datong. A whole new Chinese experience to me.

Written by: Michael L. Wemple ★★★★★ Added: 2013-10-25

First time coming to Datong brought me a shock. For me, it is a pearl decorating Chinese ancient culture. Several years ago, I met the famous Nine Dragon Screen in Forbidden City. This time, from the tour guide, I got the Nine Dragon Wall in Datong is the largest and Glazed screen in China. I like it very much.
