Tour Schedule by Day

Day 1 Yinchuan (L)

Day 1 of your Yinchuan tour starts in the morning where you will be picked up at your hotel in Yinchuan downtown and escorted to Sand Lake Scenic by one of our English-speaking travel guides.

It's approximately a 50-minute drive from your downtown hotel to the scenic. If you love animal watching and nature, the scenic is famous for bird-watching; bird-lovers flock here every spring to catch the one million plus migratory birds that come and brood on the islet of the lake.

After paying a visit and coasting the island we either can grab lunch at a nearby local restaurant or drive back downtown.

When lunch hour is over your Yinchuan tour guide will drive you back to Yinchuan downtown where you can visit the Western Xia Imperial Mausoleum (or Western Xia Tombs). It is situated in the foot of the Mountain Helan and is one of the biggest and best-preserved imperial graveyards in China, featuring over 250 tombs of imperial relatives and officials -- an unforgettable experience for anyone visiting Yinchuan. Its design is strikingly unique and made from earth and brick that represents the culture of the old western kingdom.

From here your Yinchuan tour guide will escort you to China West Film Studio (or Zhenbeipu West Studio) for a visit. The studio as one of the top three film cities in China plays an important role. It is known as “the Hollywood of the East” and it's a great place to see the lifestyle of Chinese ancestors and ancient town in the north of China.

Later your Yinchuan tour guide will escort you back to your hotel safe and sound, ending your memorable trip in Yinchuan.
