    • How to get to Simatai from the Centre of Beijing

      Beijing Jul 26, 2016 at 7:18 AM

      Hello, I have an upcoming trip to Beijing in a couple of weeks and I would like to know how to get to Simatai from the centre of Beijing. I have never been there so I would like to have all the details you can give me. It can be by train, bus, anything, I just need it to be detailed, because I do not want to get lost in Beijing :) Also I have read that people can sleep there by locals, can someone confirm this information? Thank you, looking forward to your answers.
      If there are some locals from Beijing here, I will be happy to meet you there if you are interested in exchanging cultural experiences and meeting new people (I am from Dresden, Germany, btw)

    • South China attractions to see for about 2 weeks

      Guilin Jul 25, 2016 at 12:49 AM

      We're going to be in Hong Kong and we have about 15 - 17 days free before heading to Bangkok. We were thinking of going to Guilin / Yangshuo for a number of days and then some nearby attractions before going to HK. We are looking for some nearby sites in South China that are doable and worthwhile. And from where we can get to Bangkok without too much hassle.
      This will be in January.
      Thank you

      Can anyone advise which is better to see ? What are the differences ? In terms of convenience from the train stations to get to the caves, which is easier as i am short of time on my itenary.

      thanks

    • visit to Datong from Beijing

      by limlaycheng Online Now Jul 25, 2007 at 9:12 AM

      We are planning a trip to Datong from Beijing - can anyone advise if there is nice scenery on the way if we take train in day time? Would we be able to buy soft sleepers on a day train from Beijing to Datong ? We thought of spending 1 nite in Datong and then taking the CITS tour for 1 day to Yungang grottoes and hanging monastery. Then to return to Beijing subsequently same day in evening - would there be long distance buses departing Datong to Beijing or would it be better to take soft sleepers on nite train but there would be problem what to do for whole nite in Datong while awaiting for train which leaves about 2300 hrs or so for Beijing. Planning to go Datong on Wed 26 Sept and returning Beijing on 27 Sept - travelling with 2 elderly folk in 70s. Any advice much appreciated

    • Datong -- is one day enough?

      by heymikey Online Now Mar 26, 2007 at 11:08 PM

      I'm thinking of arriving in Datong early morning from Beijing and leaving later that night to Xi'an. I don't really intend sticking around town for more than a day and I only plan to see the cave and the hanging monastery. I just have some questions about the logistics:
      (1) Can I book a cheap tour through CITS once I arrive in Datong? If so, how much?
      (2) Are there any storage lockers in the train station?
      (3) Are there any shower facilities at the train station?
      (4) I will be arriving in Datong on May 7, which is during the Golden Week. Will it be hard for me to book a sleeper ticket from Datong to Xi'an on this date?

    • Train tickets back to Beijing

      by tanby Online Now Jan 26, 2007 at 7:33 PM

      I have checked with a few online travel companies in Beijing, only able to get Beijing-Datong train tickets.

      How can I arrange for someone or travel agent in Datong to help get Datong - Beijing overnight sleepers?

      Intend to visit Datong's Yungang Buddhist Caves and Hanging Monastary only.

      Has any VTers gone with CITS day tour to these 2 places? How to book?

      Thanks.

      Boarding the Trans Siberian in Datong

      by mikegr Online Now Jun 12, 2004 at 7:47 PM

      I'm intending to travel from China to Western Russia on the Trans Siberian. I was wondering if it is possible to board the train at Datong, rather than in Beijing (I've been to Beijing before and it will add a long distance to my travel plans if I have to go back there). I'm not planning todothe journey in one go - the first leg would be as far as Ulaan Baatar. Hope you can help me out with this - I'd appreciate any information. Thanks - Mike
