Things to do in Xinjiang, China

Now, let’s go to them.

The best way to explore Xinjiang is by car, the distance between cities and towns, and the rugged but stunning landscapes make for a perfect road trip. The rock formations, desert and unique plants growing are spectacular. Rent a vehicle with fellow travelers to reduce the cost per person. Renting costs approximately CNY1500 (P11,500) with driver for the whole day for 4 people. The rate will depend on the distance and hours.

Tips while traveling in Xinjiang:
• Always have your passport ready, there are many security checks whenever you go in and out of a town or city, and whenever you enter an attraction.
• Don’t take pictures of security personnel or stations.
• Try to book accommodation before your trip when you want to spend a night near or inside a park.
