Best Time to Lanzhou
In Lanzhou, spring and summer are short, while autumn and winter have relatively long period. The best time is usually from May to October when the temperature is most suitable. Moreover, if you’d like to attend the annual "Lanzhou Silk Road Festival", August and September are the right time.

Health & Safety
1) Snack stalls are many in Lanzhou and sometimes they are very attractive, but you must beware of their hygiene conditions!
2) Lanzhou has the distinct features of a semi-arid climate, characterized by dryness and abundant sunlight. Other things to carry with you are a bottle of water, and sun protection, especially a lip balm.
3) Visitors coming in the summer time should avoid going outside during a sandstorm. Those that really must go outside should wear protective gear including big sunglasses, long sleeves and pants. Also, bring a sweater to keep warm in the evening since the evenings tend to be quite cold while the daytime it is much warmer.
4) Taking care of all your belongings while you are out especially at night, and locking up carefully of your important things in your hotel room.

Lanzhou has a good selection of handicrafts and local specialties from all parts of Gansu Province, like Jincheng Babao Melon-skin Carving, Pebble carvings, and Tao Ink Stone, etc.

You need to pay for the publice toliets which charge 0.5Yuan-2Yuan P.P. Don't expect too much,the toilets at the attractions in Lanzhou along the way are not very clean.

Money Exchange
When travel to Lanzhou, money exchange service can found in most Chinese bank and hotels above 4 star. You can also get cash on ATM machine with your credit card. The exchange rate all over China are the same fixed by Bank of China. To change money, you have to have your passport at hand. If you want to change money in a hotel, you usually have to be a guest there. Remember to keep the exchange slip well because you need this slip to change the Chinese Yuan back to your currency if you do have this need at the end of the tour. At present, the RMB is not exchangeable on the International market, so it is only usable within the country.
