Hi! Parasite,

Dunhuang is far away from Xi'an and Shanghai. I do suggest you take flight between these cities. If you really want to take the train, you can take the K591 1056/0930 from Xi'an to Dunhuang, which takes more than 22 hours.

You can take the train to Shanghai from Dunhuang Liuyuan Railway Station which is 128 Kilometers from the city Center. It is T54 0233/1431 , takes about 36 hours.

No direct flight from Shanghai to Dunhuang, you should fly to Lanzhou first and then fly to Dunhuang. You can choose to Dunhuang from Lanzhou by train either, which takes over 14 hours.

It seems no direct flight from Taiyuan to Dunhuang. Xi'an and Lanzhou have flights there.
