Situated on the edge of Dunhuang town and easily the best accommodation on offer, The Silk Road Hotel enjoys excellent views of the nearby sand dunes. The rooftop café is the perfect place to take in a dramatic Gobi desert sunset. Furnished with traditional furniture and based around tidy Ming dynasty-style courtyards, the rooms are a comfortable and evocative place to spend a night on the Silk Road trail.
