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

Impressive area with a lot of re-greening efforts

Extensive desert area with extensive rehabilitation efforts in past years. Walking in the sand provides perspective of the landscape. In several places, tours are offered for tourists.

Rude staff
Aug 2017 • Family
Attractions for tourists including camel riding, sand sliding, little train, motor bike riding etc. Should be fun but the operating staff are very rude and tell you off if you don't understand their instructions (in Mandarin).

Fun experience, worth visiting

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.

A commercialised desert for tourists
Jun 2017 • Family
There is a large hotel complex built on this desert, the 7th largest desert in China. Wind is strong and the weather has great deviations between morning and evening times. It is strongly encouraged to bring along scarfs, masks and hats to give yourself maximum protection against the elements. Camel riding is only a short 3-5 min ride with people pulling the reins, and you are merely sitting on top of the animal. The performance about Mongolian wedding is strongly encouraged at the Xiang Sha Wan but lots of walking from the car park bay to the actual venue itself.

How to spoil a desert
Jun 2017 • Couples
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...

A great mini trip to the desert experience
May 2016 • Solo
If you had limited time, this is a fun way to go into a desert for a few hours. It's definitely full-on sand dunes and desert landscape, very beautiful, and fun for all ages. It's windy and sandy (of course) - sunglasses or face covering is recommended.

7th biggest desert in China
Apr 2015 • Friends
It is actually the smallest desert in China. I went there in a group and there are local guide showing the way. Daily 20km walk was really tough. Some trees are planted in the desert to prevent sand storm in the city. Stems are completely dry. Still I didn't expect tree/stem in desert. Neither does rain...
