Chinese tourists take double-humped camels out for a spin around the Singing Sand Dunes of Dunhuang.

As exotic and fun as camel riding may appear, a 5 minute ride turns out to be approximately 4 minutes too long. The constant rocking on a bony camel back proves painful even after a few feet of motion. Soon afterwards, the lack of stirrups or a handlebar and the persistent readjustment of your body position proves too uncomfortable for some. I lasted 10 minutes then ultimately preferred to walk alongside my trusty beast of burden.
