Travel Blogs from Jiayuguan
Jiayuguan was purely a stop over to process our visa extension.
Fortunately it turns out that Jiayuguan is a very pleasant, clean and tidy town.
Arriving in at 11.30pm wasn't ideal as we hadn't accounted for the situation that arose on our arrival, fortunately we had a lovely and very patient taxi driver. I would have given up on us, but he persisted and really did help.
