Urumqi Travel Guide
 

Urumqi is the capital of the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region and the most "inland" city in the world. With a population of two million gaily-dressed ethnic inhabitants, the city is likened to a piece of emerald embedded at the foot of the Tianshan Mountains. It lies in the lofty ice-capped Bogda Peak and vast Stitle Lake in the east; in the rolling pine-covered Southern hill, a well-known scenic district, in the south; and in the titleernating fields and sand dunes of Zunggar Basin in the northwest.

The temperature in Urumqi widely ranges between day and night as it belongs to the semi-arid continental climate of middle temperate zone. The climate is extremely arid due to long period of sunlight and bare precipitation. It has shorter spring and autumn; and longer winter and summer. May to October is the golden season for traveling to Urumqi, when flowers are in full bloom and the fruits, like melons, are ripe with its fragrance.

Tourist resources of Urumqi have its own advantages and distinctions, which are strategically important in the ancient Silk Road that assembles the cultures of both eastern and western countries. The most famous tourist spots among the numerous cultural relics and natural landscapes include the Heavenly Lake, the Southern Pastures, the Red Hill, the Southern Mosque, the Tartar Mosque, and the Xinjiang Regional Museum.

Urumqi is the "Shining Pearl On the Ancient Silk Road" that is translated as "a beautiful prairie" from the Mongolian language. The breathtaking views and sweet smell of fruits drift in the air to make Xinjiang a special place beyond the Great Wall. In recent years, it has become a unique destination for business and leisure to facilitate an exchange between East and West which has become a melting-pot for all nationalities.
