Worth a drive outside of Jiayuguan (20 minutes) to see 4th century tombs which display the funeral procedures and daily life of the time. Important to go with a guide who can explain the construction and layout of the tomb, and the meaning of the...More

Not as grand as other historical sites in China, but the Wei-Jin tombs give an idea of how more ordinary people lived nearly 2,000 years ago. Visit the great little museum first to get an idea of the history, then go on to the only...More
