Travel Tips for Dunhuang
When I visited Chine there was 2 kinds of money:
1.- The normal YUAN, used by the locals.
2.- The RENMINS or "tourist money", used only by tourists.
With this last one you could buy things in "Friendship Stores" and was the only one you were "officially" allowed to change.
But of course there was black market, so U changed yuans to pay in restaurants, little shops and so...
Dunhuang, JiaYu Gate and Lanzhou
There are these spots we visited along the silk road (in red dot on the map).
A. Yining (In my xinjiang page)
B. Urmqi (In my xinjiang page)
C. Turpan (In my xinjiang page)
G. Xi'an (usually on the route but we weren't there)
After Xinjiang, the rest of silk road stops I visited Dunhuang, Jiayu Gate and Lanzhou in my 9 days trip.
Day 7 -- Night train and arrived Dunhuang in the morning.
Day 8 -- Early morning train to JiayuGuan.
Day 9 -- Night train to LanZhou - Evening Flight back to Shanghai
if we were to travel Xi'an, we could have taken another night train and that what Silk Road travel usually is designed. Start from Xinjiang and go all the way east to Xi'an.
On our travel route, Yining is the most western stop on the silk road and Lanzhou the most eastern stop.
