Where to stay in Dunhuang

An oasis in the desert, Dunhuang has a history of providing a place to stay for its weary travelers. Take a look across the city center for some fairly grand hotels, a few more ordinary ones, a couple of stylish boutiques, and a number of hostels and guesthouses, providing budget-friendly simplicity. Riverside locations have particularly attractive views, while accommodations towards the city's outskirts give the feeling of being right out there in the desert, with sandbanks on all sides.
