Anyone that has ever traveled knows what motion sickness is. Many may have experienced it at one time or another, whether traveling by land, sea or air. Motion sickness can be different with different types of travel, but the most common type of motion sickness is seasickness. Seasickness, characterized by nausea and lightheadedness, is very common when traveling on a ship.
A person may enjoy traveling by sea but still experience seasickness, caused by the motions made by the boat swaying through the waves.

Many start to feel nauseous as they are stepping onto the ship. Becoming seasick isn’t very serious, but it can be very bothersome if you have some place to go or something important to take care of while on the ship.

The national, historical city of Dunhuang is a renowned tourist city famous for the Mogao Caves. It is situated in the common boundary of Gansu Province, Qinghai Province and Xinjiang Province. Dunhuang, long ago referred to as ‘Sha Zhou’ (beautiful desert oasis), was the hub of middle and eastern silk routes in ancient times. The city landmark is an attractive statue, the idea of which comes from the mural in Mogao Caves, a shrine to the culture and arts of Dunhuang. From Mt.Qilian in the south, Mt. Mazong in the north and desert from east to west, the landform of Dunhuang City is a declining basin-plain from west to northeast, high in the north and south, and low in the middle. The western cities of China, especially those in the desert, are known for their sandstorms, so tourists should protect themselves with glasses, hats and gauze kerchiefs, etc.
In ancient times, Dunhuang was the center of trade between China and its western neighbors. At that time, it was the most westerly frontier military garrison in China. With the flourishing of trade along the Silk Road, Dunhuang was prompted to become the most open area in international trade in Chinese history. It provided the only access westward for the Chinese Empire and eastward for western nationalities. Today, as a reminder of this historical area, we are left with the Mogao Caves, Yangguan Pass, Yumenguan Pass and many wonderful Chinese poems depicting the time. Although what remains of the two Passes are crumbling walls, one can still experience the atmosphere of that time while visiting in person. Read more...
