would be good if we could have some rough itinerary to gauge interests, bcos xinjiang is really a big big hinterland province with so many potential photo locations. :)

did you hear any attacks on foreigners? besides, news of terrorism is questionable due to political reasons. so far, these places have been safe and probably safer than china.

i have reservations going middle east though. recently a few koreans are bombed in yemen.

Last I heard, xinjiang is in china
if you want to be technically correct, safer than other parts of PRC. anyway that is besides the point, many has went there without any problems. and it is definitely a cheaper alternative to central asia.

safer? i kinda doubt tt..jus beware of pick pockets
locations such as guangzhou, wuhan and xi'an is far worst. anyway, different people might have separate experiences.
