Discover the neighborhoods of Urumqi


Located in northwestern China in the Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region, Urumqi is a large and fast-growing metropolitan city that serves as the capital of the region. The city is served by Urumqi Diwopu International Airport, which is located just 20 kilometers outside of the city center.

Urumqi is located within the Tian Shan mountains, giving the area a great climate and many opportunities for outdoor activities, including mountain climbing and trekking. Urumqi is a great introduction to the whole region of Xinjiang, and the Xinjiang Autonomous Region Museum is an even better place to start this introduction to the region.

The city is quite large, but there’s plenty of public transportation to get to many of the city’s most popular attractions, including Wuyi Night Market.

There’s much more to see and do in Urumqi, and the interactive map on this page is a great way to explore where the attractions and hotels can be found in this exciting city.
