Finally after 2 years, I get to go to Beijing in early March next year,woohoo! After booking the flight, only realized that for weather-wise, it will be a downside for this trip. Kindly advise if we were to fly in and out Beijing, covering Xian, Pingyao and Datong via Taiyuan with a day trip to Chengde in 12 FULL days, is it doable? For early March, should I skip Datong (hanging monastery might not be accessible during tat period) and visit Longmen Grottoes instead enroute to Xian? We just need to visit either one of grottoes and spend more time in Beijing (5-6 days). Start to read all related posts commented by TA experts to plan the IT before putting up for advise. Thanks.
