Crescent Moon Pool, Dunhuang

(3.8/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
Surrounded by a vast desert, Crescent Moon Pool serves as an oasis that never dries up, despite the area's consistent arid conditions. The concentrated vegetation and water stand in stark contrast to the dry desert landscape, which you can explore by taking a camel ride, an ideal way to emulate the style of the travelers who once frequented the ancient Silk Road. Plan to visit Crescent Moon Pool and other customer-reviewed, writer-recommended Dunhuang attractions using our Dunhuang itinerary planner.
