... us. It was very easy to find our way to the caves (and back). The entire bus seemed involved; treating us as if we were Royals.

When we got off the bus we discovered that it was much colder than we thought. Given that it was raining, we were simply not prepared for the cold. I was a bit concerned about the three of us getting sick. As we bought ...

Datong is a city of contrasts, of new and old, of slums and high-end living and of aromas pleasant and ripe. It is also the town closest to the Yungang grottoes, one of the world's largest collection of man-made caves for buddhist purposes. Paying 150 yuan, split five ways, for a personal guide was well worth the money, as we got some background info and history on the 2500-year old temple complex.
