You are suggested to take a bullet train from Beijing Train Station to PJ and it takes about 4.5h.
No need to sleep in PJ, and you can catch a train back to Beijing.
In Sep., the beach is getting red and the weather is comfortable with a temperature of 20-25C.
As for Danxia mountain, if you refer to the one in Zhangye city. You need to back to Beijing and take a train from Beijing Train Station to Zhangye, it takes 25-30.5h. Oh, only two trains available at 15:00 and 21:40.
After arrival, you can hire a car to the mountain
