visit to Datong from Beijing

by limlaycheng

We are planning a trip to Datong from Beijing - can anyone advise if there is nice scenery on the way if we take train in day time? Would we be able to buy soft sleepers on a day train from Beijing to Datong ? We thought of spending 1 nite in Datong and then taking the CITS tour for 1 day to Yungang grottoes and hanging monastery. Then to return to Beijing subsequently same day in evening - would there be long distance buses departing Datong to Beijing or would it be better to take soft sleepers on nite train but there would be problem what to do for whole nite in Datong while awaiting for train which leaves about 2300 hrs or so for Beijing. Planning to go Datong on Wed 26 Sept and returning Beijing on 27 Sept - travelling with 2 elderly folk in 70s. Any advice much appreciated

I did the Datong -- Beijing train ride, took me 6 hours and it was a boring, crowded ride. I think it's possible to buy soft sleepers, but I guess the buses (which leave hourly till about 1700 or 1900) would be a better deal. Especially since you have elderly folk around, the buses would be more comfortable and faster as well.

Thanks for your advice Ellyse. For return trip from Datong to Beijing - would there be buses leaving in the evening as well at 6pm or so ? Or should we book soft sleeper for the train after we arrive in Datong ?

I can't remember if the last bus back to Beijing (from the long-distance bus station in the south part of town) was 1700 or 1900. You could check as soon as you arrive in Datong, and buy the tickets as well.

Travel Tips for Datong

Yungang Caves, World Heritage

by sachara

There are not only very colorful Buddha's, also the walls and ceilings around these statues and reliefs are beautifully carved and painted. You can find very detailed Buddhist stories and Indian gods and goddesses, like Vishnu and Shiva.
We visited these caves in 1991 and I was very happy to hear that these caves were inscribed at the World Heritage List in 2001 because the assemblage of statuary of the Yungang Caves is a masterpiece of early Chines Buddhist case art , the caves represent the succesful fusion of Buddhist religious symbolic art from south and central Asia with Chinese cultural traditions and because the Buddhist tradition of religious cave-art achieved its first impact at Yungang, where it developed it's own distinct character and artistic power.

Budas y Templos / Budhas and Temples

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
