What travelers say:

This place brought so many memories from home. I Loved walking on the sand dunes and honestly you really don't need the boots that they try to sell you.Fortunately, I got there when not many people were there, so I got to walk around the area without the disruption of other tourists. I also appreciate that this attraction is not very far away from downtown Dunhuang, which makes the experience time efficient.Definitely worth at least one visit.
