7 Days Ningxia tour

0 Comment(s)Print E-mail China.org.cn, June 9, 2017

Editor's Note: As major outposts on the ancient Silk Road, Ningxia and its oases were an intersection for many cultures in Chinese history – primarily Muslim, Han, Jewish and Mongol.

Ningxia in China’s desertified northwest was originally made its own a region to give the Hui people an autonomous area. But while its known mainly for Muslim culture and desert landscapes, there’s much more to this (relatively) uninhabited region than that.
