We were travelling with 2 children, 7 and 9 years old and we arrived from Lanzhou with a rental car. Nobody spoke in english in reception. Room was clean and facing the main commercial street. Previous comments from travellers helped us to take the decission to visit labrang monastery in xiahe and we really enjoyed our trip. Our trip from Lanzhou by car took around 4 hours. We arrived directly at 10.00 to the monastery and to our surprise a monk with good english guided us together with other western visitors. When the guided visit finished we still walked around 2 hours. Tibetan architecture, monks, some small temples, and not too many tourists. Later, we spent some time around the commercial street. Tibetan families from villages and monks go there for shopping. Expensive prices for embroideries and curios. We took dinner in the hotel and all the menu had pictures. Staff was very friendly. Good value for the hotel, as we were in the peak season of the national holidays in October. Xiahe is much less developed compared with dunhuang. Nearby grasslands are nice and our children rode a horse walk.
