May I know
1. how to travel to Datong and Pingyao from Beijing airport?
2. any express / speed train available between the places?
3. the weather in mid Sep 2014?
It’s too early to forecast the weather conditions in September. Based on previous records, the weather conditions in these three places are good. It isn’t too hot because summer is already gone. It’s a good time to travel.
PS: I think you may book your train tickets in advance to ensure that your trip won’t be spoiled if the train tickets are sold out.
Generally, three days are recommended to take a trip in Datong. Surely there are guided tours for the trip. If you are interested, I know Travel China Guide arranges such tour and here is their contact for your reference:
Just send them an email to consult the quotation!
