  • It is very small, like a desert oasis town of Mogao grottoes. Cafe was of course not. This image is and cross highway in the area called the downtown area of the small town, located in the intersection.

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.
