"Datong" Top 5 Page for this destination China Off The Beaten Path Tip by nepalgoods
China Off The Beaten Path: 138 reviews and 162 photos
Datong has beautiful temples, old streets and the not so far away Yungang Caves with Buddhist sculptures which date back from early 11th century. Some of the sculptures are even older.
Datong is along the track of the Transsiberian Railway. Not far away from here, the railway track is winding its way up to the Mongolian Desert.
I revisited Datong in 2009 and found a city bustling with life. The old city wall and many of the old alleys are being renovated.
