City Park
M48***81The scenery is good, it is now in repair, there is no way to go in the White Tower Temple, it is suitable for walking and climbing on the weekends, remember to bring some water bread, and don't want to eat, don't go to Longxi Valley, that is a restaurant is not an attraction.

Water Park
影子武士8159It is not easy to have such a large-scale and complete water world in Gansu. The price is relatively high, there are indoor surfing and outdoor surfing. I have also been to many water world parks in the provinces including Atlantis in Sanya. We can say that our water world project is very complete. You can play for a day. You can also go to hot springs inside. There are also children's playgrounds. It is worth going. Especially when it's hot in the summer

路上看风景的小虫子Turning from Zhangye Road into Dazhong Street, first come to Jincheng Old Bowl for a bowl of beef noodles. The price is good enough to fly. Compared to our Shanghai, it feels like no money. In order to save our belly, we 2 people came to order a B set of beef Noodles, meat, egg and yogurt are 18 yuan, plus a sauced beef for 1 to 10 yuan, and a sea bamboo shoot for 7 yuan, 35 yuan to eat, we regret it, because it is so delicious that we are afraid of filling our stomachs, so it is good to cut the half quickly Bowl of noodles and soup are all finished. Next, the sweets are all tempting, the gray bean soup is thick and delicious. The grilled lamb skewers, fresh meat can be seen, and the skewers' formation made me stunned. The sauced beef is fragrant, and the buns are comfortable to look at. I walked all the way and marveled. I love Lanzhou so much. I stayed for 3 nights and didn't want to leave. I hate that I don't have too many stomachs and eat all my greedy eyes. The anti-theft facilities in residential buildings next to the street opened my eyes.

Lanzhou Travel Tips

About Lanzhou

Lanzhou is located along the banks of the Yellow River and is the provincial capital of Gansu. Lanzhou offers an experience of true immersion in China's great northwest. According to many tourists and travelers, this city is just a transit and transfer point where, after just a short stay, they will continue onwards to southern Gansu or west along the Yellow River. But Lanzhou also has its own enchanting charm. After arriving in Lanzhou, eat a bowl of beef noodles, sip a sweet cup of "sanpaotai" tea and go for a stroll along the Yellow River. Then, you can begin your explorations of China's vast northwest.
