Know More about this tour

At 9:30am, your private tour guide will greet you at your central Urumqi hotel. Hop aboard your private, climate-controled vehicle for the short journey to the Xinjiang Regional Museum (Qu Bowoguan).

Your private guide will show you around the museum, giving historical context and background. One highlight of the collection is the well-preserved tattooed mummies discovered in the desert nearby. Look out for the Beauty of Loulan, buried around 3,800 years ago near the town of Loulan in the Taklamakan Desert and first excavated in 1980. The hot, dry sands preserved her facial features remarkably well in her open coffin: and she is still beautiful today.

Discover Xinjiang cooking, a fascinating fusion of Turkish and Central Asian elements with Chinese techniques and ingredients. Your guide will help you navigate the la carte menu and recommend dishes to suit your palate.

It's a short ride to the Hongguang Shan Giant Buddha, which towers over downtown Urumqi at approximately 38.8 meters (128 feet) tall. Grab a few shots before you head to the Shaanxi Grand Mosque, a traditional Chinese-style mosque first built in the eighteenth century and rebuilt in 1906: it echoes the style of the famous Great Mosque in Xian.

Finally, recapture the magic of the old Silk Road with a stroll through Erdaoqiao Market, once a trading hub for merchandise from all over Central Asia. This makes a great place to shop for traditional Uighur souvenirs, and your guide can help you navigate the stalls.

As this is a private tour, the precise duration is up to you: most guests are back at their hotel by 5:30pm.
