We'll be at the Victoria Hotel in Shijiazhuang in September and have a budget on TIME. We intend to arrive in the afternoon and check into our hotel, then leave as early as possible the next day to go to see Cangyanshan temple area, and be back to town in time to catch a fast train to Bejing. I heard you can take a bus, or you can hire a taxi for the day. Questions: what is the updated bus schedule (first one to leave, and then also for the ride back) and where is the bus station in Shijiazhuang? Can you give me info on hiring a taxi for the day? Do they really sit and wait for you to explore the site and take you back or do you need to track down another one when you want to come back? Also, where is the memorial/tomb for Norman Bethune in relation to our hotel? We wish to pay our respects.

Hi Everyone, It looks like not much gets posted in the Hebei Sheng forum, but here goes. We're planning a visit to Datong and Bautou along with the nearby Kubuqi desert. We're looking for several bits of information: 1. What's the nearest airport with flights from Beijing to near Datong? (flying to Bautou is no problem) 2. Can we hire a car and driver in Baotou? Does anyone know how to arrange that (a reliable source?) Maybe we should give a hotel a call and see if they can help. 3. If we can't fly to Datong or near to it, we might take a sleeper train between the cities, if we can find tickets for that, etc. Does anyone have experience or info on that? 4. Any other tips on things to see/do/avoid, etc.? I didn't see a single VT tip, but know that some of you must have been there before! Thanks for all, Susan
