Jenny Jian-Wei did a great job of introducing me to the wonderful scenic sites included in this all day tour. From start to finish, she provided the information I needed to understand the history behind the places we visited. The lunch under a grape vine was sumptuous and had a variety of the best of the local foods. I especially enjoyed the visit to Turpan and Gaocheng ancient city and the day was highlighted by a visit to the beautiful scenic mountain area that houses the Bezklik Thousand Buddha Caves. I recommend this tour to anyone who wants to get a day long adventure where you can see history and culture in the Xinzhang Urumqi region. You won't be disappointed!

Holiday At Urumqi

Turpan is a very unique place to visit which places filled with historical events such as Karez on how they build the irrigation system till now still using it. Excitement at Shanshan desert which have a good experience. We also tasted their local breakfast in one of the county. Overall worth a visit.
