datong to hanging temple


What is the fastest way to travel from the DT train station (coming with the night train from Beijing) to the Hanging Temple and the Yungang Shiku (Cloud Ridge Grottoes) and how much time does it take to get there please?
Also, how much time should one take into account for each attraction?
Thank you!

To Hanging Temple, take bus line 70 from the railway station to South Xingyun Street, and walk east for about 500 yards to Dongguan Bus Station. Then, take a bus to Hunyuan (about 2 hours). Upon arrival, take a taxi to the temple for about CNY 15.

To Yungang Grottoes, take tourist express line 603 to it directly (about 40 to 50 minutes).

You may spend 2 or 3 hours for each. :)

Dear Annie/Eva,
regarding this argument, could you specify how many stops I have to pass before of South Xing Yun Jie ( with bus 70 from station) or which is the correct name of the stop ( I'm afraid to take the right bus but not to comprehend which is the right stop)?

From the railway station, take bus no. 70 for 10 stops to South Xing Yun Jie. It writes as 兴云南街. You can check with the stop board.
