There are buses leaving from the South Bus Station to Beijing from 08:00 to about 15:00 everyday. The bus situation is good, which could drive you to Beijing in about 5 hours. You could purchase the bus ticket when you arrive at the bus station.

Thank you for your reply. Do you know the exact times the buses leave for Beijing in the afternoon? Someone told me the last bus is at 16:00, but I was wondering what other buses were available after 13:00. I appreciate your assistance.

Actually, the time schedule is just for reference since the real departure time depends on the passengers check-in situation. It means once the bus's seats are sold out, it will leave in advance of the given time. So, you'd better go to the bus station as early as possible, don't fix to the time table.

Or, you could consider taking a train to Beijing, which costs about 6 hours on the way. The schedule is fixed. You could search the train infor at https://www.travelchinaguide.com/china-trains/

Currently, there is no train from Chengde to Datong. Actually, there are three trains leaving from Beijing to Pingyao directly.

From Datong to Pingyao, the bus will takes about 5 hours. Actually, it is suggested to reach Pingyao by train, which is just 34RMB for a hard-seat.

To Yungang from the train station, please take the city-bus No.4 to its terminus and then transfer to bus No.3 which could lead you to Yungang directly~
