Visit Xinjiang

Xinjiang is an autonomous region in the northwest of China. It borders Mongolia, Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Afghanistan, Pakistan and India.

The region is known for its diverse landscapes including deserts and mountains as well as unique cultural attractions. The capital city Urumqi has many historical monuments to explore and sample some of the local cuisine. Other must-see destinations in Xinjiang include the Heavenly Lake near Urumqi and Turpan's Flaming Mountains.

Additionally, it is home to a large community of minority ethnic groups such as the Uyghur people who practice Islam and have their own distinct language and culture. Tourists can experience these cultures through traditional music performances or craft markets where they can purchase handmade items such as carpets or jewelry.

One interesting historical fact about Xinjiang is that it was once part of the ancient Silk Road trading route which connected East Asia to Europe along thousands of miles of land routes over two millennia ago.
