About Ordos

Erdos is located in the southwestern part of the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region. The Mongolian word "Erdos" means "many palaces." Erdos has a long history and diverse cultures. Visiting the desert scenery, feeling the coolness of Lake Engebei, and then riding a camel to explore the Mongolian folk customs, all combine to create a very special and memorable experience. Erdos also hosts the Yellow River Canyon, where visitors can admire the cliffs and attractions on both banks. There are also historical sites such as the Tomb of Genghis Khan, Site of the "Hetao People" and the Twelve Connected Cities.

Popular Attractions in Ordos

Whistling Dune Bay (Xiangshawan)
1,467 Reviews
Whistling Dune Bay is located in the eastern corner of the Kubuqi Desert. On the lee side of the slope of this expansive desert, it appears to have the form of a crescent moon. When the weather is cool and clear and the sand is dry, visitors can hear a humming sound like that from a drum or bugle emanating from the sand as they slide down it from the peak of the dunes. The sound is louder when multiple guests slide down together, with the whole dune becoming like a giant echo wall. Whistling Dune Bay gets its name from this effect. Exploring the sea of sand by camel is an entirely different sort of experience. There is no feeling like the amazing sensation of riding the “ship of the desert” as it traverses the sands beneath the bright blue sky and white clouds.

I firmly believe that an architect should run his garden as if he were designing his house: it can be used, it can convey beauty, it can improve taste, and it can contain wonderful art and other spiritual values. Famous Louis Barragan in Contemporary The architect wrote this. Like a giant white lotus flower, the Lotus Hotel, which blooms in the vast sands of the Sandy Bay in Ordos, undoubtedly explains this argument. Use metal plates to fix the building in flowing sand like an island in the desert. Then, the light steel keel is used as the external wall system of the building. It is not only light weight but also easy to assemble quickly. The flaps are like the shape of the sails, taking into account the effects of sand fixing, shading, wind protection and collecting rainwater. At the same time, the hotel also makes full use of the abundantity here. Solar resources. When entering the hotel, you need to take the cable car through the rolling sand dunes. Then transfer to the hotel's off-road vehicle to arrive. More than 300 rooms are like the lotus petals that are stretched out of the lotus. They are divided into several layers that are centered on the lotus flower. The "Lotus Heart" on the top floor is actually the location of the hotel bar. The room at is not large, but the space is cleverly designed. Outside the floor-to-ceiling windows of the landscaped rooms, you can stretch the sand dunes. You can enjoy the sunrise and sunset in the desert in the bed, and look up at the stars or the sun in the night. Tips: 1, Lotus Hotel adopts a one-price all-inclusive method. When staying, the staff will put a bracelet on the guest, and you can enjoy all the hotel with this bracelet. service. 2, Lotus Hotel is located in the desert of Xiangshawan, 40 minutes drive from Ordos Airport.

If you look at the Internet, the meaning of the word "Ordos" in Mongolian is mostly interpreted as "a place with many palaces", but there is no period in history where there are really many palaces. After deep communication with the locals, I found that the more reliable explanation may be the southern grassland. Erdos is located at the southern end of the desert, and its Mongolian pronunciation is similar to that of Ordosuo. - Perhaps this is the true origin of the word Erdos. D1: Kambash New District Kambash New District is a high-tech development zone located more than 30 kilometers southwest of Ordos, about half an hour drive from the airport. When you enter Kangbash, you will find that everything here is exceptionally advanced every building is as grand as the Great Hall of the People. The Ordos Museum Museum is divided into several different exhibition halls, of which Halls 2, 3 and 5 are recommended for viewing. Hall 2 is the Ordos Paleontology Exhibition, Hall 3 is the Ordos Mongolian History and Culture Exhibition, and Hall 5 is the farming, nomadic, collision, and blending Erdostong history exhibition. Geerle Ama This is the most distinctive Inner Mongolia restaurant. It is all in a variety of interior styles. Even the waiters are all Mongolians. D2: Ulan Mulun Lake Musical Fountain Kambash's Ulan Mulun Lake Musical Fountain is the world's largest musical fountain and the tallest fountain that can be sprayed to 209 meters. Genghis Khan Mausoleum Genghis Khan Mausoleum, the locals are called Chengling, the original Genghis Khan's crown, and the Dahlite has been guarding. The equestrian show equestrian show takes place at Nadam Square, southeast of the Genghis Khan Mausoleum. The Mongols are really a legendary horseback nation. This wonderful equestrian performance is really thrilling, and it is a sweat for them. The venue of the marriage show wedding show was performed in the big yurt of the Brakhot Hotel near Nadam Square. The Ordos wedding is very unique and the program can last for a few days.
