Urumqi General: 30 reviews and 27 photos
Favorite thing: When Albert von LeCoq, one of the famous adventourers exploring the Silkroad, visited Urumqi about 100 years ago, he called Urumqi a dirty, fly-infested city with a bloodstained past. He spoke of unhealthy looking population and ugly streets.
Well, Urumqi has changed a lot. 2 Million people, highrise buildings and wide highways are now the main sights in Urumqi. The Old Town has almost completely vanished. But the bazaars and streets are colorful and interesting, bustling with life.
