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. With our international travel planner, China vacations can be built around trips to Datong and other destinations in China.
