"The Da Si. This strange looking mosque seemed to combine the architecture of traditional Buddhist China and that of Islam.


The capital of Inner Mongolia's Autonomous Region, Hohhot was a sprawling city with a population of over a million. Its centre, with wide tree-lined streets, had many smart, modern buildings that I felt would have been at home in the USA, quite a pleasant surprise after Datong.


One of the really nice things about China was the complete lack of crime; and although I had a job finding my way back to the hotel along the dimly lit streets, at no time did I ever have any fear of being mugged or robbed." - MH
