Travel Blogs from Urumqi
Urumqi is a far flung frontier city in the far north west of China. The city's Mongolian name Urumqi (pronounced Ur-room-chi), also known by Chinese authorities as Ulumuqi, Wulumuqi or even Wushi, has always conjured up a most fascinating destination, especially having the dubious reputation of the furthest place in the world from an ocean (2,250 …
It is always good to be back in Urumqi, the capital city of the far western Province of Xinjiang. We have used the city for our last three trips to China as a convenient base for our travels into Central Asia and Pakistan. We are now of course very familiar with Urumqi which always feels like home.

We had almost completed a round trip to where we began our journeys in early April (refer entry "Back 'Home' in the Lovely and Exotic City of Urumqi"). Once again it was good to be "home" in Urumqi, an exotic city that we had come to love - and to use as our base for our travels west of China.

We arrived at Kashgar airport early the next morning for our flight back to Urumqi where we would stay one night before heading off to Shanghai and back home to Australia.

The Hoi Tak is a lovely hotel located in central Urumqi. We have used the city of Urumqi on numerous occasions as a convenient and pleasant stepping off point for our travels into Central Asia, the Indo Pak region and the Middle East. We always stay at the Hoi Tak which now feels like home to us. It is located within walking distance of the interesting Erdaoqiao Markets and Uighur shops. Rooms are well appointed and spacious, staff is friendly and speaks very good English and each night there is a very good buffet meal, serving both Chinese and western food. On our last visit however, the hotel was showing signs of wear and in need of refurbishment. We would highly recommend booking a room overlooking Renmin Park.
