Where to stay in Datong

As well as restoring and recreating its historical sites in recent years, Datong has been building hotels. Fairly evenly spread across what is a fairly small and non-residential urban area, you'll find a number of hotels offering standard and luxury options, with some high-rises providing good views of the ordered streets of the city. Budget-friendly options can be found off the main boulevards throughout Datong, and include guesthouses, the odd youth hostel, and budget hotels.
