  4. Hello Cecila,

    Taihuai Town is about 330km to the southeast of Datong city. The taxi fare is around RMB 600.

    You may hail a taxi on a street and talk with the taix driver about Datong and Taihuai taxi ride one day before your departure. Or you may ask your hotel to arrange a taxi for you.
