  • Here thousands of years ago used to be the most prosperous cities on the Silk Road in the desert, when it flourished, and from the stream of businessmen, although now buried in sand, but still can see that was Grand.

  • This point of view but feel that development is not very good, it's the size, we are to look at on your way to the South Lake, no tourists, said to be the ancient city, in fact, only a remnant of the wall, others are built.

  • Dunhuang special orchid of the day, that other landscapes with very strong Western plot, save murals that brought you to the far Northern Wei Dynasty, there in the road on both sides is the endless plains, when the weather is good you can also see a mirage, very spectacular!

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.
