Yadan National Geological Park, Dunhuang

3.9
Enjoy the bus ride around the distinctively shaped rocks at Yadan National Geological Park. The bus will take you around the geopark to several different viewing points, where you can enjoy the view and take pictures. The park covers an area of 398 sq km (154 sq mi), with its rock formations having developed over a period of 700,000 years. Make sure to bring sunglasses and a mask or a scarf to protect your face from the wind, which blows sand across the park. Bring your own food and water, as you won't find many dining options at the park.

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.
