Hotels along the Silk Road

The Silk Road covers most of China, from modern cities in the central China to isolated villages and towns in the remote west. Accordingly accommodations along the route range from high standard luxurious hotels to simple guesthouse.

In cities like Dunhuang, Turpan, Kashgar, Urumqi, Lanzhou, the visitors can enjoy high standard hotels. They all provide excellent conditions, all-round services and they are quite safe. But this kind of hotels is more expensive. Visitors on a tight budget may consider the cheaper hotels (Guesthouse). With simpler facilities and basic service, these guesthouses are used by most Chinese travelers. In the remote villages only simple and rough lodgings are available. These locations offer nothing but a quite simple room.
