Datong is a little off the beaten path but is definitely worth a visit if you have two days to spare. Both the hanging temple and grottoes were beautiful. Fly by Knight Datong only enhanced the experience. The owner set us and a couple other travelers with a driver for the day to get us to the hanging temple. The hostel was super clean and the bed was the softest I'd stayed in. The view of the city was also gorgeous. I can't endorse this hostel enough.
Pro tip: Over Chinese New Year the city is pretty dead, so many restaurants are closed. However, there is an awesome lantern festival worth a couple hours of exploration so think about going then!
