The 2 minute quad bike was quite nice, only 35 euro&#39;s!
Honestly, just don&#39;t go. Ignore the fake reviews. They lie to your face, take your money every opportunity they got and the facilities were disgusting. No pillows, no mattress. Don&#39;t go and safe yourself an awful stay

Very good

Good for the experience”

A large amount of what you pay is for the experience. With our package we received: sleds to go sand sledding, a small ATV ride, hot pot style dinner, beer, a bonfire and some Chinese style entertainment. The tent we received was collapsible and we were permitted to set up nearly anywhere we wanted in the desert. We enjoyed a nice sunset, and a nice sunrise. There are also extra activities such as camel rides and dune buggy rides you can pay extra for.
The bathroom facilities were very poor. I would prefer to use the great outdoors. The staff were friendly but there was limited English translation which caused some confusion with receiving our tent. The entertainment was lots of KTV, dancing and random music around a bonfire. Which may be your thing.

Waste of Time &amp; Money”

Pickup was well organised, and they staff were able to arrange return transport when we decided we&#39;d had enough.
Firstly, you should know this place is not Foreigner Friendly. My mandarin is OK, but i struggled to communicate. When you arrive, there is an instruction introduction. The person leading that spoke insanely quickly, and was openly mocking the Foreigners, making us feel quite unwelcome. Next step is to go sand sledging. we jumped onto a homemade truck and driven like they stole it onto the dunes. Sledging was fun for 10mins (1-2 tries), but they&#39;re not taking you there for that, For them, its all about selling you trips on their quad bike or sand dune buggy. they want to charge you 100rmb ( $15) to drive you for 30s on a quad bike or double that to go in their dune buggy. Once we rejected, they hounded us. They have quotas. You cant drive these yourself, only be driven on them with zero safety in mind. No helmets, and the person driving them was out of control most of the time. While there, we saw a bad crash on 1 quad bike that rolled, injuring the passengers. There are vehicles flying everywhere..... in the same area as people sledging. Super dangerous, nearly ran over children several times. Stargazing didnt happen, it was too cloudy. Previous reviews say you need to pay for that as well in addition. After that, there is a meal and entertainment. Even before the entertainment started we decided to leave. It was loud, crazy loud.... assume random bad signing&#47;ktv was about to take place. BBQ&#47;Hotpot looked very poor, we didnt stay to taste it. Random bits of cheap spam, warm beer on the side...... Tents were not set up, thats a task for you at the end of the night. So, to recap, you&#39;re paying $40 a person to: 1) Get there 2) Sledge on sand 3) Eat bad hotpot &#47; warm beer 4) Borrow a tent for the evening, which you then put up yourself 5) Get back. They&#39;ll want you to spend a bunch more money on : 1) Paying to be driven on their quads 2) Paying to be driven in a buggy 3) See Stars I was happy to leave and get back to the...

Party camp”

Didn&#39;t expect it to be a party kind of stay. At the end of the day, I had fun and enjoyed it. We get to sand sled and get a ride on an ATV through the desert for free. Overall, it was a good experience.
There&#39;s only two male toilets for like 100 of us. That could be improved. The location is away from town and they&#39;ll pick you up from town. But I dislike the fact that we have to check out at 7.30am latest if you want to catch their shuttle bus to town. 7.30am is too early and we can&#39;t even get taxis from there because it away from town. It would be a better experience where we can sleep nicely and enjoy the desert until noon.

staffs are friendly and helpful.. the belly dance was good .. performer really interact with our group inspite of communication barrier..
The facilities and services is not muslim friendy.. actually we leave the camp at that night to find a hotel. When we knew that we need to install our tent ( tent size is not suitable for adult) ..we were only allowed to set up the tent once the performance finished around 11pm .. they only can speak chinese, no english at all..
