Isolated on the end of ancient Silk Road, lies the capital of Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous region, named Urumqi. Once served as the transportation hub for the Silk Road, the city has now turned into a metropolitan hub with beautiful scenic beauty surrounding it. On one hand, you get to see picturesque mountains like Mount Tianshan bordering the north side of the city and Jungar Basin bordering the south. On the other hand, the city’s booming industrial structure has made it a resident hub for nearly 3 million people.
The city’s list of achievements doesn’t end here. Rich heritage of Xinjiang preserved in Xinjiang museum plays a major role in attracting thousands of tourists from all over the world. For the shopaholics, the city offers a Grand bazaar where you get traditional Chinese décor and gift items to buy. However, be smart enough to bargain the price to save your pocket.
A perfect blend of natural beauty with cosmopolitan lifestyle makes Urumqi an ideal tourist destination in China.
