Main Attractions for this tour:
Shanhua MonasteryYungang Grottoes: Yungang Grottoes is the three main sites in China that are famous for their stone sculpture are Dunhuang, Longmen and Yungang. Among these, the Yungang grottoes are considered first among equals, for their tremendous size, ancient history, and relatively complete state of preservation. Carved during the Northern Wei Dynasty(460-524), there are over 1,100 niches with about over 51, 000 statues.
Huayan Temple: Built during the Liao Dynasty (907 - 1125), the Huayan Temple is the largest and best preserved Buddhist temple of the Liao Dynasty in existence in China.
Nine Dragon Screen: Built over 600 years ago, it is presently the oldest and largest glazed screen in China today. It is three times larger than that in Beihai Park.

Hanging Temple: Built more than 1,400 years ago, Hanging temple was built into a cliff near Mount Heng. About 40 buildings survived are scattered halfway up the mountain on the cliff face or slopes, from 26 to 50 meters above the foot of the mountain. This temple includes Buddhist, Taoist, and Confucian elements in the same temple.
Yingxian Wooden Pagoda: It is the oldest and tallest wooden pagoda in the world and was built in 1056 during Liao Dynasty. The Wooden Pagoda was made entirely of wooden parts joined by innumerable mortises and tenons in a complicated structure of brackets, without using any nails. The octagonal pagoda is one of the few surviving examples of a Song-Dynasty pagoda, rich in detail, dynamic in bracketing, and noble in proportion.

City Wall: Built in the Ming Dynasty(1368-1644), Datong City Wall has beared significant strategic importance since ancient times. It is laid out in a square shape, 14 meters high and 6.5 kilometers long. The base was made from stone strips, slates and blue bricks. Four gates was built along the wall called Heyang Gate, Yongtai Gate, Qingyuan Gate and Wuding Gate.
Shanhua Monastery: Shanhua Monastery is located in central Datong within the old city walls. It was first constructed during the Tang dynasty (618-907AD) though most of the present wooden building dates back to the 12th century. The monastery houses some intricately carved Jin dynasty (265-420AD) statues and has a screen wall decorated with dragons.
Chunyang Palace: Also called "Lvzu Temple", Chunyang Palace was the only Quanzhen Taoism temple in Datong. It was built to sacrifice Taoist Lv Dongbing. Covering an area of 6,000 square meters, there are three main halls along the central axis. Bell and Drum Towers and minor halls were built on the east and west side.
Guandi Temple: Located near the Nine Dragon Screen, Guandi Temple was the only architecture built in the Yuan Dynasty(1271-1368) in Datong. The brackets and of the wing corner on the main hall are unique. On the ceiling of the hall, were painted dragons with diverse gesture.
