Lanzhou
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.

D32***30English speakers:Great museum. If you want an English speaking guide, this must be arranged a day in advance (and naturally paid for). some great catalogs in English, and a particularly superb/unusually comrehensive pottery collection. silk route objects also spectacular. Note many of the buddhist statues are reproductions. Nice cafe.

迦陵梦萦📍On the north bank of the Yellow River, it is recommended to take a taxi to ⏰7:00-19:00 and open for free 🏯Baita Mountain is one of the must-stop places to come to Lanzhou. I have witnessed the scenery from summer to winter, and I have a different mood every time I climb a height and look into the distance. The same is the panoramic view of Zhongshan Bridge and the Yellow River. 🏯The white pagoda is commonly called the white pagoda because the outer layer of the pagoda is covered with white ash and white paste. It is close to the north bank of the Yellow River, and there are two gates of Jincheng and Yudie at the foot of the mountain, both of which are ancient military centers. 🏯The white pagoda has seven levels and eight sides, with a green roof on the top and a round base on the bottom, about 17 meters high. One, two and three buildings on the mountain, cornices and red columns, among the jagged green trees, pavilions and corridors are connected, extending in all directions. 🍂This time it’s the next Lunar New Year's Day to climb high to pray for blessings. By the way, I watched the cold wind of Jincheng in early winter, but it also has a different beauty. 📿December, winter is all right.

dsyliangTake the intercity express from Lanzhou Station and walk a little forward across the road after exiting Lanzhou New District Station. The traffic is convenient. The iconic buildings of various scenic spots are scattered in the film and television base, and there are also amusement facilities such as the Internet celebrity Rainbow Bridge. Overall it is not bad.
