Datong Travel Guide: 65 reviews and 143 photos

Con la vara de medir China , Datong no está lejos , pues tardamos 5 horas y media en tren y desde Beijing .
Datong , en la provincia de Shanxi , que fue capital del imperio con varias dinastías es una ciudad pequeña y tranquila en la que te puedes mover en autobús perfectamente y utilizarla como base para desde allí visitar el templo colgante de Heng Shan y los budas de las cuevas de Yungan , ambos espectaculares y dignos de verse

With the Chinese yardstick , Datong is not far, because it takes "only" 5 ½ hours by train from Beijing.
Datong , in Shanxi Province, that it was the empire capital with several dinasties , it is a small and peaceful town in which you can move around by bus and use it perfectly as a base for visiting from here the hanging temple Heng Shan and Yungan Buddhas Caves , both spectacular and worthy to visit
