Datong

Trip Planner Asia  /  China  /  Shanxi  /  Datong
(3.5/5 based on 1,800+ reviews for top 20 attractions)
Things to do: sightseeing, historic sites, religious sites
The old city of Datong has an interesting and complicated history of development, sacking, and rebuilding. The attractions of Datong have famously been rebuilt in recent years, at vast expense and with many residents forced to leave. Many of the ancient sites within the city walls do a good job of recapturing the atmosphere of the China of old, while some genuinely ancient sites--including grottoes, temples, and pagodas--lie within close proximity to Datong. Our China travel itinerary planner allows you to plan your trip to Datong and a wealth of other destinations big and small.

Where to stay

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.
