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.
