Yungang Grottoes Datong
One of the most amazing sites I have been to in China, comparable in scale and splendor to the Terra Cotta soldiers in Xi'an.
The site is huge so if you wish to take advantage of everything, all galleries, museums, park, etc. you will need more than the two hours we had allocated.

We took our time to visit all its halls, and admire the view from above (and below) - it does feel pretty high when you're up there - what an incredible - and precarious - structure!
We were so glad that we visited this site, It truly is a magnificent feat of achievement for the Chinese.
