Private Datong Day Tour Arranged by Local Tour Guide Nancy

20 reviews
Enjoy the undivided attention of your guide on a private day tour of Datong. Start at your hotel, then travel comfortably to each location by private transportation. Rather than skim the surface like a typical large group tour, you get engaging guided visits at Yungang Grottoes, Hanging Temple, and more. Ask questions, get suggestions, and avoid language barrier issues with the help of your private guide.

A work of fine craftsmanship and art. In 1056, Emperor Daozong of Liao had the wooden pagoda built at what was his grandmother's home. It is the world's oldest wooden pagoda and has withstood earthquakes and and wars.

Hard to believe this thing is still exist and stand still after so many natural disaster becoming one of tallest wooden pagoda in the world. When you are visiting Datong, this can be put together for your trip all the way long from Hanging temple and then to Wutaishan to see another magical landsacape of Buddhism history in China.

I wasn't that excited to pay a driver to go that far from Datong to see a pagoda. Living in China I had seen many. But trust me this one is special. No spikes, just wood. It's the biggest wooden pagoda in China. Worth a visit after the caves and the hanging temple if you have spare time and money.

You'll see a lot of pagodas in China, but we did this one after visiting the Hanging Temple at Mount Hengshan. It's the tallest wooden one in China and is well preserved

Beautiful wooden Pagoda of 76 meters high, no nails, no screwes used. Very quiet place and interesting architecture. On the way between Datong and the Buddha Grotoes.
