Dunhuang, a city on the edge of the Gobi Desert in western China’s Gansu Province, is enjoying an off-season tourist boom.

Could the humble camel be playing a part in the unexpected winter visitor growth?
Tourists typically jet in on sleek, comfortable airplanes. But the beautiful natural landscape can only truly be appreciated on the back of a camel.
The number of daily tourists reached 1,300 in November, much higher than expected, with visitors trekking to the Crescent Moon Lake to enjoy stunning and rare desert views.
And it’s not only the grandeur of its scenic views that Dunhuang has to offer – its handicraft art and culture are also widely admired. Just remember to experience the rich adventures on a camel’s back!
