Once a major stop-off on the ancient Silk Road trading route, Lanzhou today acts as an important place to rest up for Silk Road tourists and trekkers.
On the 1st (Sun), take an in-depth tour of Gansu Provincial Museum and then contemplate the long history of Lanzhou Shuiche Park. Here are some ideas for day two: take in the awesome beauty at White Pagoda Mountain (Baita) and then take in the views from Iron Bridge of Yellow River.

To see other places to visit, traveler tips, reviews, and tourist information, go to the Lanzhou trip builder website.
