CHINA, DUNHUANG : General view of the Yueyaquan Crescent Lake in Dunhuang, in China’s northwestern Gansu province. Formerly a silk route hub and centre for trade between China and the West, Dunhuang relies heavily on tourism and features a number of historic sites dating back to the Han Dynasty. The city has an arid climate and is surrounded by sand dunes, a result of increasing desertification. AFP PHOTO / Ed Jones
