It seems that Jiuquan tour is not the most popular place for sightseeing by most travelers to China, but Jiuquan city still boasts its long history and special scenery. Jiuquan, a prefecture-level city, is located in the westernmost part of Gansu Province in China. The main elements of the landscape in Jiuquan are mountain, basin, gobi and oasis. Enjoying the history of more than 1600 years, Jiuquan used to be a major stopover place along the famous Silk Road northwest from Lanzhou, the capital city of Gansu, and an important economic site due to its abundant mineral deposits. Now, Jiuquan is famous as the nation's satellite launch center. Thus, Jiuquan is named as "the hometown of the Dunhuang art" and "the cradle of China's aerospace industry".
The transportation in Jiuquan is relatively convenient with train, air and road connecting other places in China. There are some historical relics in and around Jiuquan city. The city's drum tower is the symbol of China's brilliant history and used to be known as "Night Watchman's Tower". It is the only remaining structure left in which Marco Polo praised in his writings. A few miles away from the city is where the Jiayuguan Pass is located, the western end of the Great Wall. The walls were originally constructed by the Han and perfected by the Ming Dynasty before they abandoned it.
