In the suburbs of Dunhuang, there is a beautiful desert on Mingsha Shan. There are wildernesses all over the world where no plants or trees can grow, but there are few deserts that look as good as this one. The scenic Mingsha Shan, with its silky sand, has become a tourist attraction, attracting many visitors. There were also many people doing business with the tourists.

One of the businesses that cater to tourists is a service that offers camels to ride on the sand dunes. It is a great way to feel like a caravan on a sea of sand. Even if it is only for a short time, you can feel like you are traveling along the Silk Road.

One of the camels was yawningz as I looked at the waiting camels. Perhaps he was fed up with walking through the sand dunes with tourists on his back day after day.
