Things to do: sightseeing, parks, museums
Once a major stop-off on the ancient Silk Road trading route, Lanzhou today acts as an important place to rest up for Silk Road tourists and trekkers. Several important historical sites can be explored when using Lanzhou as a base, with a wealth of caves, temple grottoes, and hilltop monasteries among the key attractions of Lanzhou. With the Yellow River flowing through town, and a number of pleasant night markets to explore (and a whole host of street food), the city center has an accessible and lively feel to it. Use our China vacation builder to arrange your visit to Lanzhou and any other destinations in China that take your fancy.

Where to stay

For centuries Lanzhou has offered visitors a bed for the night, and though everything else may have changed, this fact remains the same. The urban area spreads out along the south bank of the Yellow River and includes a range of accommodations to suit all manner of tastes and budgets. Look for the newer commercial areas to the south of the city center for some of the larger high-rise hotels, offering both luxurious and standard rooms. Close to the river, you can find some smaller guesthouses and boutiques, while side streets have a large number of youth hostels to suit more budget-conscious travelers.
