Lanzhou - General

With a population of over three million Lanzhou is centrally situated in China on the Yellow River where it flows in a relatively narrow valley between mountains. Over 2,000 years ago it was a major hub on the Silk Road but now it is a major industrial centre. The city itself is pleasant enough but has relatively little to offer visitors, although its position as a transport hub is significant to tourists. Its location in a valley means that pollution is often considered to be a problem, but when we were there we had reasonably clear conditions. But there was an earthquake warning.
