    What to Expect
    Day 1: Beijing - Datong - Yungang Grottoes - Nine-Dragon Screen

    Your English speaking driver will pick you up from your hotel in Beijing at 7:30am and transfer you to Datong (4 to 5 hours driving time). On the way you will enjoy the beautiful countryside view. Once you arrive in Datong, enjoy your lunch in a local restaurant nearby the Yungang Grottoes. After lunch, visit the Yungang Grottoes, a World Cultural Heritage Site since 2001. Continue to the famous Nine-Dragon Screen, built for the Prince Hongwu. It is presently the oldest and largest glazed screen in China. It is three times larger than the one in Beihai Park in Beijing.

    Afterwards, transfer to your hotel. 

    Day 2, Datong - Hanging Monastery - YingxianWooden Pagoda - Beijing 

    Your driver will meet you in the hotel at 8:00am and head to the Hanging Monastery (around 1.5 hours driving), one of China's most unique and remarkable feats of wooden architecture. The monastery is also the only one built in honor to Sakyamuni, Laozi, and Confucius, who are founders of Buddism, Taoism and Confucianism respectively.

    After enjoying your lunch at a local restaurant, continue your trip to Yingxain Wooden Pagoda. It's one of the planet's oldest wooden buildings. Not a single nail was used in the construction of the nine-story, 67m-high structure, which has thus far survived seven major earthquakes.

    After the tour, your driver will transfer you back to Beijing, which will take around 4 to 5 hours.

    You will be back to your hotel in Beijing around 20:00.
