Overall Satisfaction:
"Meaningful"
I went Datong with my father and mother. It was the first time we went to travel together. So I was extremely excited. And everything was satisfying and meaningful. I think the hotel was economical and clean. The bathroom was also big enough. The bathe goods were also provided. I also like our guide Jenny. She was a nice girl. She was good at speaking English and educated. I learned much from her.
