  • Plan of tennis to get to the site, you need a 30 h to get there. There are free shuttle, but you escape to the crossing of the forest or the hundreds of steps to access.

Where to stay in Taiyuan

The majority of Taiyuan's accommodations line the grid-like streets of the city center, either side of the north-south river that bisects it. Almost all flank Middle Ring Street and are comfortable but undeniably bland business hotels. You can find the highest concentration of options around Yingze district, but don't expect much variation from the soulless, mid-range accommodations found throughout town.
