Today we are leaving Taiyuan to Datong. In the morning, we took a taxi to Taiyuan Airport. We took Sichuan Airlines. We arrived at Datong at 12 noon. At the airport gate, we took the airport bus out of the city. The driver charged each passenger. 15 yuan minifigures, his wife asked him to ask for a ticket, and he urged that he would give it to us before driving. However, the silver code of the received ticket was only 10 yuan printed, it would be a wolf. The terminal of the airport bus is just outside the hotel's gate. This is one of the reasons why I choose this hotel. The Datong Hotel is a state-owned hotel. The national leaders come to Datong to live here. There are Zhou Enlai, Li Peng and hotel staff in the hotel. Photo, but this hotel has perfect hardware and software needs to be improved.
Huayan Temple was built in Liao Dynasty. It was built on the basis of the Buddhist Classic of Huayan. After the middle of the Ming Dynasty, the whole temple was divided into upper and lower two temples, each opened a mountain gate, which became a whole. In 1963, it became a temple.
The most worthy sight of Shanghuayan Temple is the Noble Palace, with an area of 1,559 square meters and a length of 53.75 meters. Standing on a platform with a height of more than 4 meters, it is the largest single building in the existing Buddhist temple. The glaze on the eaves of the palace is 4.5 meters high, and the northern end is a relic of the Jin Dynasty. It still looks like new after more than 800 years. In the middle of the hall is a statue of a five-way Buddha. The walls are full of painted murals from the Ming and Qing dynasties. The content is mainly based on Buddhist legends. It is skilled in technique and large in scale. To the north of the hall door, there is a stone inscription in the Book of Changes in Zhu Xi written by Song Dynasty.
After lunch, we immediately set off to visit Huayan Temple. The transportation is very convenient. Huayan Temple is in the old city. It only costs eight yuan to take a taxi. Huayan Temple is worth a visit, but the amount of exercise on both feet is very high. After visiting Huayan Temple, we went back to the hotel for a buffet dinner. The figure was 50 yuan per person, including drinks, great value. No wonder the state-owned enterprises can survive, because all the money is lost.
1. One of the three largest grottoes in China, the stone carving here not only has the style of the Central Plains, but also blends the style of the Western Regions, which is very unique.
2. Look at the open-air Yungang Buddha in Cave 20 and feel the charm of the Northern Wei Dynasty art boutique.
The Yungang Grottoes are located at the southern foot of Wuzhou (Zhou) Mountain, about 16 kilometers west of Datong City. It was built in the era of the Pingcheng City (now Datong) in the Northern Wei Dynasty. Unlike the Luomen Longmen Grottoes excavated in the later period, the Yungang Grottoes not only have the traditional Chinese artistic style, but also incorporate the artistic features of various ethnic groups in ancient India, the Western Regions, and the Central Plains. The most representative is the 13.75-meter-high open-air sitting Buddha statue in Cave 20 (White Buddha Cave). This statue is still intact above the chest: the face is semicircular, the eyes are deep, the nose is large, the eyes are large, and the lips are thin. The typical Western ethnic minority , Indian facial features.
The hotel we stayed in sells tourism items to us (one day tour of Yungang Grottoes, one day tour of Hengshan Xuankong Temple), each of which costs more than 200 yuan per person. Since it is free, we decided to experience it ourselves. Today our destination is Yungang Grottoes. In the morning, we took a taxi from the hotel to the first stop of the bus at Yungang Grottoes. The taxi fare is 7 yuan, and then the bus fare is 1 yuan per person. The bus is very empty. You can see along the way Looking at the construction of Datong City, the bus left the urban area and went to the suburbs. After passing the PLA, I saw that there are still people living in the grottoes. The bus stop is Yungang Grottoes. The journey takes about an hour. It took about 8 minutes to get to the ticket office, and here I enjoyed the 60-year-old free admission benefits. But my leg strength was tested again. After entering the cave area, we found that Datong is here this time. It is really a good trip. The visual experience is shocking and admirable. Those who like stone carving can spend a whole day here. The only pity is that some of the stone statues in the stone cave have been severely damaged. There are helpless natural and malignant man-made.
After visiting the Yungang Grottoes, we took a bus back to the city. In the big shopping mall near the hotel, we found a Sichuan restaurant for lunch. The noodles and dishes tasted good, followed us to buy 2 cups of pearl milk tea to replenish our strength. After a two-hour break, we started a bus tour of Datong City again. At night we returned to the big shopping mall near the hotel, but this time we ate a buffet Korean BBQ, which cost 68 yuan per person for drinks.
The Jiulongbi was originally a photo wall in front of Zhu Guifu, the king of the early Ming Dynasty. Among the three most prestigious Jiulongbi in existence, it is the earliest, the largest, and the most artistically charming. (The other two are in Beijing, one in Beihai Park in Beijing, and one in front of the Huangji Gate of the Forbidden City in Beijing. They were both built during the Qianlong period of the Qing Dynasty, and they were 350 to 400 years later than the Jiulong Wall.)
In the morning, we have breakfast at a restaurant in the Armed Police Hotel near the hotel. Because the guests in the Armed Police Hotel have armed police and their families, the food quality is guaranteed to a certain extent. If there is a problem with the food, the armed police brothers will not handle the responsible personnel of the restaurant. strange. At breakfast, we decided to go to Hohhot, Inner Mongolia next time. From the Armed Police Restaurant, we went directly to buy train tickets. The train ticket sales office was in a nearby vegetable market, passing a litchi stall, and it was very fresh. , My wife bought a pound to try, the market is very lively, there is a long line of steamed buns, all bought a large bag, after buying a train ticket, we will go back to the hotel to book a hotel in Hohhot tomorrow, very Fortunately, we found another four-star hotel for the event. We booked the hotel room immediately and started today's event.
We took a taxi to Jiulongbi, and the fare was nine yuan. At the Jiulongbi venue, we met a group of tourism students who were studying in the field. They actively talked to tourists. One of them invited us to go to their next internship site. "Of course, it is good for young people to lead the way. The city walls are very high and the walls are wide. There are eight-seater coach services and bicycle rental. If you want to walk around the city, you must use this transportation. They asked Some of the situation in Guangzhou, because I told them that we are from Guangzhou. From their talk, I saw their affection for big cities. After visiting the Ming City Wall, we went to the most prestigious "Oriental Noodle" in the region to eat noodles with knives. , It's almost 2 pm to go to the oriental shaved noodles. It's still packed, and we have to wait in line for lunch. The taste is average. After lunch we will go back to the hotel and let our legs rest.
After lunch break, when we found that it was almost dinner, we decided to find a restaurant near the vegetable market to try it. How did I find out that all the restaurants were open in the middle door and not picking up customers? It turned out that there was a power outage in the afternoon. And the local power outages often, their habits The middle door was opened as soon as there was a power outage, indicating that there was no power and therefore no pick-up. We had to go back to the Armed Police Restaurant for dinner. The Armed Police Restaurant was "ox". There was no electricity throughout the street but it did not affect it.
Datong is located in the northernmost part of Shanxi Province, 3 and a half hours away from Inner Mongolia (Hohhot). Today we have to say goodbye to Shanxi Province. Take a taxi to the train station in the morning. The fare is 13 yuan. Flashlight No. 136536 21714, if you go to Datong in the future, you can find him to solve the traffic problem. We took the train at 9 o'clock, and arrived at Hohhot at 12.10 noon. This is a new station, but the management is poor, and the reading platform The elevators and pedestrian elevators were all closed, so that we had to take our luggage down the long stairs, and the directions outside the station were unclear. We had to ask the public security to know where the taxi stand was. The taxi stand was a mere dummy, and it was often given to people. "Chuhu", http://lyt.nbxc.com/serverImages/9be7ae1d6a0a69fe14d2cecd00b14651 The taxi master is the worst I have encountered in China, the first is to refuse to load, and later I said that I would pay another 10 yuan for the fare. Finally let us get on the bus, and asked us to pay another 10 yuan in the middle of the journey. If we didn't agree, we would get off the bus. Only under the prestige, we only agreed.
Finally arrived at the hotel without any surprises. After entering the room, we turned on the air conditioner immediately, but could not feel the cold wind. I called the front desk to complain, and the front desk informed that the hotel must obey the government regulations to turn on the air conditioning in June. Now only natural wind, I'm dizzy. After simply having lunch nearby, my wife decided to go back to the hotel to rest first and then dispatch later.
There is a vegetable market near the hotel, there are many barbecue shops, roast leg of lamb on the side of the road, friends who like to eat sheep, be sure to try it, unintentionally, we found a Hong Kong-style tea restaurant, decorated like a decent look , I decided to join the game, but I was disappointed. The barbecued pork was dry and hard, which was different from the photos in the menu. But the Mongolians in the tea restaurant have tasted very much. Maybe they have not been to Hong Kong, so they mistakenly believe that Hong Kong Tea The food in the restaurant is like this.
Dazhao is located in the old city of Hohhot, Inner Mongolia. The Mongolian name "Yikezhao", which means "great temple", was built in the Ming Dynasty. It is the largest Huangjiao temple in Hohhot and it is also the rare temple in Mongolia without a living Buddha. . The reason was that Emperor Kangxi lived here for a few days. In order to show respect to the emperor, the monks cancelled the reincarnation rule of the living Buddha.
Dazhao Temple is exquisite in architecture. The main hall is a common Tibetan and Chinese-style Lama temple system. The rest is built according to the traditional Chinese temple style. The hall is dedicated to a silver-casted Buddha image, so it is also called "Silver Buddha Temple".
Take a taxi to Dazhao Temple in the morning. The fare is 13 yuan. We visited the whole morning. The construction of the temple is very different from that of the Central Plains. The decoration inside is glittering, the colors are bright, and it has its own style. Here Half price is over 65 years old, free for over 70 years old, we have to pay the full ticket to enter. After visiting Dazhao Temple, we go shopping in the nearby old street. The commercial atmosphere of the old street is too heavy, a little new, follow We took a bus back to the downtown area near the hotel for lunch. We wanted to eat Mongolian food. After being hit by accident, we entered a Mongolian restaurant called Bayandelehai Hotel (later it was known from the Internet that this is Hohhot) The most famous Mongolian restaurant), which is very large. There are a few yurts behind the shop. The waiters are wearing Mongolian costumes. We ordered white cut lamb, raw lamb chops, yogurt, Mongolian onion cakes, and the portion is very big. Can't finish.
The Inner Mongolia Museum takes the theme of "steppe culture" throughout all its basic and special displays to form a "steppe culture exhibition". The four basic displays of "Ancient World", "Magnificent Plateau", "Underground Treasure", and "Flying Shenzhou" introduce the ancient fossils such as dinosaurs, modern animals, minerals, and aerospace. The four basic displays of "Grassland Fire" show the vertical development of grassland culture from ancient times to modern times to modern times in the form of plate beads. These display systems describe the complete image of Inner Mongolia.
The Qing dynasty built a northwest border and built a new city 2.5 kilometers northeast of the old city of Hohhot. It was named Suiyuan City, and it was commanded by General Suiyuan. It also supervised the Prince of Monan Mongolia and the garrison of Datong and Xuanhua.
The General Office of Suiyuan City was built in the form of a high-ranking official office in Xinjiang, covering an area of 15,000 square meters.

The hall in the courtyard is 3 entrances, the front is the hall, the sides are the east and west halls, the hall is the public hall, and the back yard is the general's private residence. After several repairs, the Department maintained roughly the original layout.
The hotel has sold us projects to go to the Mongolian grasslands and deserts, but they are not in our consideration, because whether you go to the grasslands or deserts, you have to take a full day car. It is not worth it. Today we went to visit the Inner Mongolia Museum and take a piece The Qian bus went directly to the entrance of the Mongolian Museum, the tickets were free, the museum was very large (see the attached picture), and the power was immediately tested again. At noon, a set meal at the robot restaurant in the museum, 23 yuan each, including Mongolian milk tea, Yogurt, salad and Mongolian meat buns. Especially the meals are delivered to your table by a robot. At about 2 pm, we left the museum, and my buddy ’s camera battery has run out of food. This is a good time to return to the hotel, because today is the last day we are in Hoh City, we are trapped yesterday due to rain. Make up for time at the hotel.
After the tea break, I immediately set off to visit the General Suiyuan City General Administration. This was once one of the Communist Party's contact points. You can also take a look. Follow us to Wanda Plaza. The mall is very large. The third floor is full of The restaurant, I really do n’t know which one to choose. We saw a long line in front of the door, which is a Korean barbecue buffet. There is a 60-year-old welfare for everyone. Only 45 yuan per person is included in drinks. , Each person has to pay a deposit of 10 yuan, before the departure, the waiter in charge will sign your list, and then you can get back the deposit with the list. When leaving the square, a group of aunts are dancing the square dance. Look at them I jumped so hard and stopped to take a look. How did we know that we missed the last bus back to the hotel and waited almost 15 minutes to get a taxi.
