  Datong busses
by tremendopunto

Well, Datong public transportation is quite adventurous! The bus on the pic still has some scars from several roadkills and the door opens by pulling the "automatic" line;-)
In other busses you could look through the bottom holes all the way to the streetground - if Datong wouldn´t be so polluted due to the heavy coal industry I would say it is good for fresh air.....
But they offer a good connection to the Yungang Caves. It takes about 20 minutes.
Bus rides normally cost 1 Kuai.

Type: Bus
