About Urumqi

Urumqi, commonly known as Ürümqi, is the largest and capital city of Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, located in northwestern China and the largest city in Central Asia. During Tang dynasty, Urumqi was a major hub on the Silk Road, which later on the 19th century developed as a major cultural and commercial centre.

The Xinjiang region highlights for its multiculturalism – At least 49 minority ethnic groups coexist. Due to this fact, there is a great mixture between cultures, which is reflected especially in its cuisine.

As interesting spots, you shouldn’t miss the Grand Bazaar, the Hong Shan, which stands for the symbol of Urumqi, People’s Square, Urumqi Tatar Mosque; outside the city of Urumqi, approximately at two hours, there is the Heavenly Lake Scenic Area, a well-known and beautiful place, which highlights for its alpine scenery.
