Yungang Grottoes and departure

Today your driver and guide will take you out to the Yungang Grottoes, one of China’s best known sites of Buddhist sculpture. Here you’ll buy your ticket and meander through the temples and sculptures with your guide. Some parts of the site are over 1000 years old! Afterwards, you’ll be driven back to your hotel in time for lunch. Perhaps ask your guide for tips on local restaurants to eat.

The rest of your day is free for you to explore the city. Perhaps head to Datong’s museum, home to millions of relics. The city’s Drum tower and Huayan Monastery are also well worth a visit. On the last day of this trip you’ll pack your bags and continue your journey through China. If you would like us to include your transfer back to the train station just let your Travel Specialist know.
