Day 2 Dunhuang (B, L)

Dunhuang (B, L)

Sightseeing: Dunhuang Mogao Caves, Dunhuang Museum

Arrival in Dunhuang, you will be met by your local guide and then be transferred to your hotel in Dunhuang.

After lunch, we will drive to Dunhuang Mogao Caves, also known as "Thousand Buddha Grottoes". They are located at the rock side of the Singing Sand Mountain in Dunhuang city of Gansu Province. The 3 or 4 tier grottoes extend 1.6 kilometers. According to historical records, the Mogao Caves were carved in 366 AD. There are 492 grottoes in existence with some 45,000 square meters of murals, and 415 painted clay figures.

Then visit Dunhuang Museum. It is a local museum for housing the cultural relics that were excavated in the Dunhuang area. Now there are over 4000 historical items contained in the museum. The museum is divided into four exhibition halls.

Day 3 Dunhuang (B, L)

Dunhuang (B, L)

Sightseeing: Mingsha Shan & Yueya Quan

After breakfast, we will drive to visit Mingsha Shan and Yueya Quan. Located at the northern foot of the Singing Sand Mountains in the southern suburbs of Dunhuang City, the Crescent Moon Spring and Singing Sand Mountains scenic spots are 7 kilometers away from downtown Dunhuang and cover a total area of around 200 square kilometers.

The Singing Sand Mountains and Crescent Moon Spring are twin sisters of natural beauty in the wild Gobi Desert. The sand mountain sings because it is divine while the spring is beautiful because it is miracle. Tourists get thrilled and distracted no matter when they have a bird's-eye-view of the beautiful sand dunes from the top of the mountain or wander beside the clear spring. It's no surprise to have the saying that Singing Sand Mountains helps people free from all worries and Crescent Moon Spring purifies people's minds.

You will have a free afternoon and enjoy yourself in Dunhuang on your own.

Comment on our service from Gloria Rabanal, Mexico
I really enjoyed my tour in Xian despite of the high temperature. The information provided by the guide was relevant from a historical point of view. She was kind and she tried to answer all my questions.

Thank you very much for your letter, I really enjoyed my tour in Xian despite of the high temperature. In this context, it was helpful to have a transportation with air conditioning, thanks you also for the bottle of water, I suggest you to have the bottle of water cold and to keep them in an ice box.

Comment on our service from David Steele, Australia

All our tours in Shanghai were great and the service was fantastic. And our Beijing tours was hit and miss a little bit.

Just a little feedback of our recent tours with you.

All our tours in Shanghai were great and the service was fantastic.

And our Beijing tours was hit and miss a little bit.

The guide we had for the tour of Tiananmen Square and Summer Place along with Forbidden City she was fantastic forgot her name, sorry.

I think you supplied the guide name Rocky what a blast we had with him number one guy.

So our top guides were Miss Keely or Ping along with Rocky and Miss Zhang.

I’ve been sick since we returned so that's why late feed back.


Best wishes,
