  1. Hi,
    I am plannig a 9 day trip to the Silk road and I need help to decide which places to visit in a so short time. My first question is can I visit in the same day Maijishan Grottes and Shuiliandong Caves from Tianshui by rented taxi

  2. Hi
    It would be very difficult to do both in one day. They are in completely opposite directions.
    Bus connections to Maijishan are fast and frequent. Getting to Shuiliandong can be done by bus, train and taxi, or just by taxi from Tianshui. Roads have improved since we were there and times are much faster. It seems retoration work has finished and the area is completely open.

    Here is a link with more recent information:

    I hope this info is useful. Have a good trip.
