We had fun time there, especially the kids. Camel riding, sand sliding and giant truck riding are some of the fun activities around the area.

You can watch beautiful sunrise and sunset by living in this hotel. Many intersting activities can be done: such as sandslide, ride motors/trucks in sand... More

Shapotou Tourist Area is very large, looks very new, from toilets to all the gates. Very few people were there in April 2013. Entrance ticket 90 Yuan. If you take boat for river trip on the left, buy ticket. We didn’t so we walk to the right to take bus for 20 Yuan to reach another gate. Keep this return... More
