City Park
wic***itHongshan Park (Red Hill) is a mountain park in downtown Urumqi which made of dark red rocks. This hill is the symbol of Urumqi. When you are at the top, you can view closely the rock formation and you can view the city. Up there there is a toilet, some restaurants, a pagoda, and some iron frames and machines for exercises. I saw a mini version of Tiantan (Temple of Heaven) similar to one in Beijing. We took electric cart for 10 Yuan going up almost the top and walked in leisure the rest of the mountain. The entrance is free but you need to scan your bag and cigarette lighter is taken. When you go out, you can take back your lighter. Walking down is very easy and short. A visit to this park takes about 2 hours if you don’t exercise. Near the South gate there is a lake with many gold and red fish and you can rent a boat to cycle in the lake. From my memory there is South Gate and East Gate.

Nature Reserve
Zoo
boboThis can be said, indeed I took a lot of photos, also *** a lot of horses. Never touched so many horses in my life, and still sweat-blooded horses, 8 million-13 million, there are more than 300, too valuable.

Urumqi Travel Tips

About Urumqi

According to many Chinese people, Ürümqi—near the northwestern edge of China—is a distant and mysterious place. Ürümqi is the capital city of Xinjiang Autonomous Region and its name means "beautiful pasture". Bold ethnic style is this city's outstanding feature, teeming with Islamic influence. Ürümqi is located at the juncture between Xinjiang's north and south. It is a must-see location for tourists visiting Xinjiang. The lively Xinjiang International Grand Bazaar is a vast marketplace where shopkeepers sell every imaginable type of Xinjiang specialty good. There are also many beautiful scenic parks on the outskirts of town, or, traveling a little farther, you can enjoy the spectacular glaciers. Xinjiang has over 18,000 glaciers. Most Xinjiang restaurants have many local delicacies to try.
