How can I connect a train?
I will visit Xinjiang province and will end my trip in Dunhuang, I searched and there was no train between Turpan to Dunhuang, is that true?

All trains from Turpan to Dunhuang stop at Liuyuan station, please search Liuyuan and then you can find many train schedules from Turpan. But liuyuan station is over 100km away from Dunhuang, I suppose you need to arrange a car in advance. The public buses are also available.
