Turpan

Turpan, in ancient Turki means a rich and fertile area. The sweetest grapes in the world are all around the Turpan Basin region, with majestic and beautiful sceneries beside. You can appreciate the scenery while enjoying the grapes in daytime, or eat them while you are enjoying the romantic Uygur dances and songs in the evening. If you look at the map of Xinjiang, you will notice a very low spot on it, marked -155 m, and this lowest point in the world inside the Turpan Basin is called Aydingkol Lake (Moonlight Lake) which is a place famous for its extremely hot and dry environment.

Korla

Kuqa

Minfeng

Hetian

Since the ancient time, the jade in Hetian has been very famous throughout China. It is said that some furniture and decorations in the imperial palaces during the Shang Dynasty (1600 BC - 1046 BC) are made of jade. In the Chu State period, jade accessories represented the nobility of the royal family, and more and more civilians were attracted by the elegant beauty of jade during the Han Dynasty. At that time, the marquises dispatched workers to the Kunlun Range in western China to mine raw jade material. The miners' labor and the enthusiasm in jade accessories of the nobility have partly made the Silk Road flourish.

Yarkent

Kashgar

There is no crowded and noisy place in Kashgar, Xinjiang of northwestern China, where the local people say that if you haven't been to Kashgar, you haven't been to the Xinjiang region. The old city of Kashgar is a pure Uygur town, and you can always hear the prayer of Almighty Allah from the mosque tower when you're standing on the top of one of the yellow earth buildings in town. Uygur merchants are unlike the ordinary businessmen. They are so quiet and they don't shout loudly to sell their merchandises on the streets, because people are very familiar with all the things that they are selling.
