Longmen Grottoes

There is no need to wait after you enter into the ticketing hall as you can buy the ticket directly. The fare is 100 yuan, including Xishan Grottoes, Dongshan Grottoes, Xiangshan Temple and Baiyuan. From the northwest gate to the scenic spot, you can only tour in this order. Every time you enter a scenic spot, you must mark a hole on the ticket. And you must not enter and exit twice.

Opposite the ticketing hall is the visitor center. You can store your luggage for free. If you put your luggage here, you need to go back to the northwest gate through the Longmen Bridge after you finish viewing the Baiyuan. (You have to walk 20 minutes in this section, you can also spend 10 yuan on the battery car.) If there is no baggage or the baggage is not heavy, there is no need to store it. After visiting the Baiyuan, you can take the bus or take a taxi directly near the northeast gate. However, there is only one bus in the Northeast Gate, namely K81, the end point is Luoyang Station, not the Longmen High-speed Railway Station; while there are more buses from the Northwest Gate back to the city, but there is no normal direct access to the Longmen High-speed Railway Station.

Therefore, if you want to go to the Longmen high-speed rail, please ignore the bus, or change the bus. As for the No.67 (now the No.167) and the No.71 buses seem to be the sightseeing car, and according to the Luoyang bus online information about these two bus lines, there are only one car per line, and the interval between departures is 120 minutes, so if you are not so lucky, you may wait for two hours.

From the ticketing hall to the newly renovated stone gate (check-in office), it takes more than ten minutes to walk. There are several small shops on the right-hand side to provide breakfast. And the mineral water costs 2 Yuan/bottle.

Mogao Caves

As a world-famous grotto art treasure, Mogao Caves has become the most popular attraction on the Gansu Tourism Line. It is normal to buy the ticket difficultly during the peak season.

In order to buy the tickets, you should check a lot of travel guides on the Internet, and here are some experiences that may be helpful for you to buy the tickets:

1. There are two kinds of tickets for Mogao Caves: the reservation ticket and the emergency ticket. The former is sold 30 days in advance and can be purchased online. The latter is sold three days in advance. The previous emergency ticket was only purchased on-site at the Dunhuang City Ticket Office or the Mogao Grottoes Digital Display Center, but it can now be purchased locally through the WeChat applet. In addition, it is said that virtual location can also be used to obtain emergency tickets in other places.

2. Emergency tickets are super popular, you often need to queue in the middle of the night to buy the ticket. The reservation ticket is relatively better. After all, many people can’t decide the itinerary one month in advance. However, some people thought that it would not be so urgent to buy the reservation ticket. However, the ticket is for sale at 9:00 a.m. and you will find that the tickets at 8:00 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. are sold out and only a dozen of them are left at 9:00 a.m. So, you must buy the tickets fast and fast, after all, there are opportunities for refunds and changes.

3. Everyone who buys Mogao Grottoes tickets are preferred to take the trip there in the morning, because the Mogao Caves is sitting west to the east, the light inside the caves in the morning is better, and the temperature is lower in the morning, as sometimes it can reach nearly forty degrees at noon. It is also because the ticket sales in the afternoon are slow, so many tour groups put the Mogao Caves itinerary in the afternoon, so the chance of getting a reservation ticket is bigger. So, just make your tour there according to your time schedule so as to have better experience in the Mogao Caves.
