Dunhuang Media Tour
The historical city of Dunhuang is a renowned tourist city famous for its Mogao Caves. Once a center of trade between China and its western neighbors and the westernmost military garrison in China, Dunhuang was the most open area in international trade in Chinese history. The fine Buddhist art in caves, the imposing garrison forts, and the thrilling scenery of the desert and oasis, all of these make Dunhuang a must see on a tour to China. Today, Dunhuang people are busily engaged in preserving the heritage at Mogao grottoes and fighting the enlarging desert. Join CRI reporters for an inside look at the city of Dunhuang - the pearl on the Silk Road.
