Is it Safe to Travel in Xinjiang? The answer is YES. Our hometown is the most safe place in China. As one of the mysterious places along the silk road, Xinjiang is the best place where you can not only enjoy the magnificent natural landscape but also experience the ethnic culture.
Introduction of Xinjiang Tours:
Xinjiang is a beautiful region. Just looking around the world, it is quite difficult to find another region with such numerous splendid natural scenic spots including glaciers, grasslands, lakes and mountains, not to mention the extremely vast area of desert and the second-highest mountain(K2) in the world. Even the charm hidden deep inside of the mountains stretching for thousands of miles is enough to make you linger and forget to return.
Security issues of Xinjiang:
Is it safe to travel to Xinjiang? This is a question that many people will ask when they plan to travel to Xinjiang for the first time, here I can tell you: Xinjiang is safe! Anyone who has doubts before coming to Xinjiang will change their minds after getting off the plane. When you sit on the bus and enjoy the exotic characters of Urumqi, when you eat lamb kebabs and drink beer in the May Eve Market, when you buy a variety of small commodities in the bustling International Grand Bazaar, you will fall in love with this place.
Messages of travelers:
We received a lot of messages from tourists, such as "I really enjoy Xinjiang, the poplar forest in Kashgar Zepu, the visually endless mountains and so on". Xinjiang has too many things to love. Nowadays Xinjiang is using its international friendly appearance to welcome tourists from all over the world.
Security Check of Xinjiang:
When traveling to Xinjiang, China, you probably have heard about something that it's not very safe to travel in Xinjiang, or locals may not be friendly to Han travelers. The most impressive story is that when I was already in Dunhuang, Gansu Province, and was about to enter Xinjiang the next day, I chatted with another Chinese backpacker. He showed a frightened look when he knew that my schedule was not only Urumqi and Northern Xinjiang, but also going deep into Southern Xinjiang. He persuaded me, "If you don't really need to go to Southern Xinjiang, you'd better not go!"
Xinjiang travel is undoubtedly safe, and this security is based on restricting "monitoring". The security inspection in Xinjiang is very thorough. Apart from airports, passenger terminals and other transportation hubs, even hotels, shopping mall and grocery stores are required to use the security inspection. Moreover, at each bus stop, a policeman will be arranged to scan the backpacks of all passengers with an electronic detector, preventing someone will bring dangerous goods on board.
Therefore, it is necessary to know in advance and book hotels that can accommodate foreign guests when traveling freely in Xinjiang. And it is highly recommended to rent cars or travel with the agency because it is very troublesome to travel on your own.
