This is just on the edge of Dunhuang and has been turned into a theme park with camel rides, sand dune slides, special coverings for your shoes to keep the sand out for a fee (you never walk on the sand because of the board walks) and so on.
The crescent pool was thoroughly underwhelming.
I was with a group and was bored to tears. But then those who have never had a camel ride enjoyed the experience. The sand dunes were magnificent notwithstanding the people and camels clambering all over them. The local Chinese tourists also seemed to be having a whale of a time. Perhaps it is just me :)
