China, an East Asian country is one of the world’s oldest civilizations. It has a vast cultural history of more than five thousand years and an outstanding natural beauty. On the other hand, this country has remained a comparatively isolated and secluded one, and being a land of mystery, this country is not known to the western half of the world. However, China is rapidly developing and has grown in the phase of modernization, with an immense speed and is also welcoming the outer world to interact and do business with them.
Datong lies between an inner and outer section of the Great Wall. The outer section of the wall follows the north border between Shanxi and Inner Mongolia and a visit can be combined with a trip to the Yungang Caves. The inner section of the Great Wall acted as a secondary line of defence and is located 100 kilometers east of Datong near Hengshan. 320 kilometers away from Beijing, the Great Wall at Datong is not as well maintained as Badaling but its very remoteness makes it all the more awesome.
