    Pollution???

    by rajeshktlanzhou2 Written Apr 23, 2004
    Polluted yet beautiful

    Favorite thing: Air pollution level is high so if you are suffering from breathing trouble, take utmost care. Though the city is like any other big city, beautiful, good transportation, supermarkets and of course road side noodles. Must taste?

    Fondest memory: Flowers in Lanzhou University.
    Five spring.
    Of course Lanzhou people..

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: A local Muslim store selling ermm...I don't know, anyway it attracts me. There are about 5 to 10 % of Muslims stores and restaurants in Lanzhou city.

    If you are looking for big modern shopping malls, take No.38 bus to Nanguan junction. A book shop of 6 storeys and a few gigantic stores and big squares.
