What people are saying:

Like the flying pipa, it is the symbol of Dunhuang. There is such a statue of a bouncing pipa in the roundabout in the center of Dunhuang. It may not be so eye-catching during the day, but the lights are very beautiful at night. Dunhuang Night Market is nearby. When you go to the night market, you basically pass by.

    Not Worth a Special Trip

    If you travel into town on bus #3, it goes by the statue. Nice statue in the round-a-bout and would take about 1 minute to see it.

    Just to say you’ve been

    Nothing much to it but if you’re in the night market you might as well go see as it’s close by. More interesting is to keep going another 100m past it and there is a municipal building where people g...
