The merit to the Great Voyage and the various maritime exploration of the continents in the world has always been attributed to the adventurous spirit of the Europeans. But the Ancient Silk Road to Central Asia that extended far into Europe is a great testimony...More

The statue is very easy to find and located close to the night market. The walk is quick and you can get some nice photos without much effort.

Admittedly it is a decent statue but not one that is worth going too much out of your way to visit. For instance, if you were going to the nearby post office to mail some postcards or indulge in a spot of philatelic indulgence then...More

敦煌最有代表性的人物形象,絲路美女能歌善舞的標準姿勢,在敦煌市區的中心圓環。可想見以前的輝煌。反彈琵琶的美女最能代表絲路的輝煌燦爛形象。you can see the ancient beauty who dances and plays music with a very difficult position. this is telling about the glorious history about this silk road.
