I am not sure if this information is updated. I saw some one says online that there are 3 buses a day from Jiayuguan Long distance bus center to Dunhuang, at 9am, 10:30am and 2:30pm. It should take around 4 hours on the way. You may need to find it out in Jiayuguan on spot.

From Dunhuang to Jiayuguan in June 09
Do you think I will be able to get a ticket at the time of departure? I am not sure if I can finish my visiting in Dunhuang as plan.

See from the recent availability, it should be possible to get a seat on the day at station. However, June 9 is the last day of a 3-day holiday, so it is very hard to say. Maybe you can check the tickets often online firstly and make decision according to the tickets.

All the rides to Dunhuang are in early morning, no afternoon one?
Answers (1)
Answered by Amelia from INDONESIA | Jan. 07, 2019 19:05

Indeed all the rides are in early morning, or should say midnight. However, these rides did save you time for day time visiting. If you want to travel in afternoon, you may need bus etc instead.
