Dunhuang Things to Do: 35 reviews and 72 photos
The VERY IMPRESSIVE caves are decorated entirely with murals and beautifully painted sculptures of Buddha, Bodhisattvas or other disciples. They date from various Wei, Zhou, Sui, Tang dynasties, etc...
With the excellently-preserved cave art and rich, diverse styles, it is certainly well worth it to pay a visit to the caves.
A pity several ?rectangles? of wall-art had been removed by Western collectors. Only certain caves are open to tourists and all must visit with guides.
You need to pay Y20 extra to engage an English guide, which runs less regularly. But do be warned that their English leave a lot to be desired. It is a risk as it really depends which guide you end up with.
Directions: Minibuses depart from Dunhuang Fandian at around 8am in the morning. They wait and pick you up at around mid-afternoon for the return ride.
