About Lanzhou: Lanzhou is located along the banks of the Yellow River and is the provincial capital of Gansu. Lanzhou offers an experience of true immersion in China's great northwest. According to many tourists and travelers, this city is just a transit and transfer point where, after just a short stay, they will continue onwards to southern Gansu or west along the Yellow River. But Lanzhou also has its own enchanting charm. After arriving in Lanzhou, eat a bowl of beef noodles, sip a sweet cup of "sanpaotai" tea and go for a stroll along the Yellow River. Then, you can begin your explorations of China's vast northwest.
