Dunhuang has a clean city centre with a commercial area with many shops and many hotels. There is a small pedestrian area with shops and open air stalls selling artifacts and other tourist goods. Between the city and the dunes of the Gobi desert lies the Leiyin Buddhist temple, which at the time these photos were taken was undergoing a restoration. Dunhuang has an airport with direct flights to Urumqi, Lanzhou and other cities.
