The largest city in Inner Mongolia, Baotou used to be an arid region inhabited by Mongolian herders and their sheep. The town that has since grown up has four main parts:

  • Donghe - the old part of town and lies to the east
  • Qingshan - part of the new city with a small and depressing walking street
  • Kunqu (Kandulun) - major part of the new city and is the main shopping and entertainment area with all the western restaurants near Baobaidalou (a large walking street and shopping area)
  • Jiuyuan
