A weird place found in the middle of nowhere in a western oligarch province of china. I don't blame the people searching fun and distraction from a hard life with strong winters and hot and dry summer. Beware: this place is created for mass tourism. It's not bad, the masses are carried around efficient, the attractions are great for burn... More

if not for the great view from the top of the sand dune, this is an average place. May appeal to the locals only.

This is one of Ningxia's most popular attractions and it has a lot going for it. There are a decent variety of sand and water based activities, but be aware that everything inside costs extra, so costs could mount up rather quickly.
