Dunhuang Travel Overview

The oasis town of Dunhuang lies at a crucial junction of the Silk Road, that ancient braid of caravan trails stretching for more than 7,000 kilometers from China to the Mediterranean, which served as a highway not just for merchandise, but also for ideas, religious, cultural and artistic. By the 4th century AD, the Silk Road had brought Dunhuang both commercial prosperity and a growing Buddhist community. The name “Dunhuang”, meaning “to flourish and prosper”, indicates its prominence in ancient times.
