Hi, I went to northern Xinjiang in Sep 2007 - an unforgettable experience! Besides a well-planned itinerary, a good driver is a must! I would recommend the following two drivers without hesitation:

刘 勇兵 13999266923
辜友苹 13565839828

The driver would fetch you from Urumqi airport, and drive according to the itinerary you come up with. Here are some photos to give you an idea of what to expect if you plan to visit Northern Xinjiang: http://www.pbase.com/neophotography/northern_xinjiang

I did not go to the Southern part though.

Hope this helps.

Hi cherrsyj

Thanks for the reply .

Just find a driver cum as a guide will do right?
You dont really need to buy a tour package from agent there.
Just plan your own itinerary and book hotels on your own.

How many days u went ?

We went there for 10 days ;)
You can have the hotel in mind. If you cannot arrive at the place in time, the driver will help to find.
We did not buy any tour package. But you need to pay for entrance fee for certain scenic spots.
Check this out for the brief itinerary:

I did a 20days trip in 2004...starting from Lanzhou, east to west to north and than to south and back to urumqi...

if you can read chinese...maybe can read up my multiply blog on my whole journey ( mixture of chinese and english)

I did not book any hotel at all...book a 4WD from kashgar to go near the china pakistan border...and also a 5day 4wd to travel the taklamakan desert...
even after 6years..I can still rem the beauty of xin jiang....would love to go back there again

and
go to kashgar, from there travel to karakuli lake... the scenery there and along the way is awesome.

It is good to visit xinjiang . Can you tell me how many days you are palnning and which time ?
Xinjiang divided two part and two part is diffrent with view and cultur as well. Be cause of the mountain tianshan xinjiang divided two southern side of tianshan is called south xinjiang with more dry climate desolated mountains ,desert, high mountains like karakoram , pamir, also famous silk road`s shouthern also end in here by kashgar. North will be ily, altay, urumqi, citis as I mentoned, but more grasslands lakes, and more rainfals,
If you want cultural trip I would say that you should fly to urumqi, from any major city in other parts of china. and then urumqi museum, overnight in urumqi to see the markets and next day turpan 150km from there. turpan you will see karez(underground water channedl) astana ancient city, jiaohe ancient city, tuyuk village ,grape valley,etc.
Then take train to kuqa where once was buddist ceneter in xinjiang, you can visit the kizil buddist cave which were built in early 4centeruy. Then take train to kashgar , and 3days in kashgar`s old city , sunday bazaar, and some other activities as well. Send me e mail if you like . Freealip@yahoo.com
