    Hi,
    How can I do a day trip on public transportation to ZHANGBI UNDERGROUND CASTLE and Wang’s Compound in 1 day. Can you please tell me the bus times (first and last) bus and the frequency and the cost and duration of the rides. I need to know how to get from Zhangbi To Wangs and back to Pingyao,my starting point. I will be going in September,2014.Thank you very much,Dale

    Hello Dale,

    It is comparatively easier to take the two daily buses from Pingyao bus station ( 8:30am and 11:00pm, back at 12:40pm and 4:00pm. But there are no buses directly either connecting Pingyao and Zhangbi, or Zhangbi and Wang Family Courtyard.

    If you want to put Wang Family Courtyard and Zhangbi for one day trip, We suggest you use the daily Wang Family Compound and Zhangbi tours available at most of the hotels within the ancient city wall of Pingyao. The daily tours are quite convenient, time-saving for single travelers. Have a great time in Pingyao!

    I would like to catch the bus from Pingyao to Datong. What are the times and how long does it take
    Thanks
    Silvia

    Hi SILVIA,

    There are few buses from Pingyao to Datong. Basically you need to take the bus first from Pingyao to Taiyuan, where you connect the bus going to Datong. Alternatively, you may take the train from Pingyao to Datong.
