Having never visited a desert before, this was truly a unique and memorable experience for me and my 3 teenaged kids. The place is big with lots to do. You could easily spend a day here. Be warned though that the place is horribly commercialized too, with nothing much decent to eat. So bring your own snacks and drinks. Lots of great photo taking opportunities.

Wear pants, sneakers and a cool cool T-Shirt as it gets really hot here. And of course bring lots of cash!

One ticket includes all the rides, like an amusement park ($260RMB).
Cable car takes you into the desert. A modified van steers you to the main hub. You can go for the camel ride, the train ride, sand dunes slides (straight down and scary) and sand sculptures viewing.
The food is HORRIBLE in the cafeteria which is not included in the ticket. You don't have much choice in the desert. Best to bring your own box lunch and water.
The sun is strong. The sands reflect the sunlight and with the altitude, you need lot of sunscreens and hat or else you can burn easily.

If you want to take pictures like you can see in tripadvisor for kubuqi desert, don't go there. We took a driver and ended up at the kubuqi desert tourist area. For 300 rmb you can go in a car over the dunes without any protection for yourself and end up wih a view to several highways, where you slide go by motorcycle or camel over the crowded desert. It is not nature at all. For everybody like us who want to see nature, this is NOT the place to be.

This was the Disneyland of deserts. You ride a cable car into the sand dune desert area and then take a ride on a "ship" to enter the attraction area where you can ride camels, take a zipline, ride in ATV's, ride a bike around a track, play golf, play volleyball and soccer, etc. Once you've finished there and returned via "ship" to the first area you can slide down the dune, which was fun, and then take a final cable car back to the entrance/parking area.
It was fairly busy, even on a Monday, and our guide informed us it is even busier on the weekends with long lines to do things.
We were hoping for a more "authentic" desert experience and definitely had to temper our expectations when this was what we arrived at, but if you can just enjoy what there is to do, you will probably have a good time.
Definitely bring water, sunscreen, and a hat as there is some shade, but a lot of walking outside between the different activities.

Lots of fun in an afternoon here. The ticket costs RMB340 for all rides, that includes: camel, sliding, 4 wheels bikes, transportation...
The place is good for fun, but it is too tourist driven, as you can imagine it is hot, there are food and drinks for purchase, there are plenty of washrooms at the base camp... In case you really need...
It takes around 1hour from Ordos

Gives you the experience of being in the desert (camel riding, sand sliding, jeeps, etc.), without the crowd!

We visited with a group called CET in China geared towards cultural exchanges within China. Loved riding the camels, sand surfing, riding ATVs through the desert and of course meeting new people. It is an excellent group activity and great way to meet others who are looking for adventure.

I went to this desert expecting...a desert! Meaning a pristine place, a beautiful and hostile nature, a place for letting your thoughts wander as you experience how the traders of the silk road must have felt when they had to go through such a beast. Well it was nothing like this at all. They managed to ruin it with a huge hotel complex in the middle, cheap attraction and lame shows. Forget nature, this is a place for commercial activities and for finding ways to ruin a gorgeous landscape with swimming pools. Everywhere your eyes go, you'll see human buildings. So much for natural wonders. Sad...
