Dunhuang

3.5
Once a vital stop-off on the Silk Road trade route, Dunhuang today offers travelers of all persuasions a place to rest in the middle of the desert. Centering around an atmospheric market, the town center has a modern yet homely feel to it, with tree-lined boulevards, a wealth of cafes, and a number of places to stay. The dunes and desert landscape that surround can be explored on visits to Dunhuang, while a number of ancient cave temples and fortifications can be found hidden amid the vast expanse of sand and rocks, showcasing the artistry and devotion of those who passed through here long ago. Dunhuang is in Gansu. Use our China trip planning tool to arrange the details of your trip to Dunhuang and other destinations.
