The sun is nearly 3 hours behind Beijing time so it is dark when we wake at 7 to the strains of 'We wish you a Merry Christmas' coming through the window. Later in the day, as our feet get drenched to 'Rudolf the red-nosed reindeer ' we realise too late that this is the warning signal of the mobile water sprinklers as they patiently patrol the …
... Silk Route (and written a novel based on the Silk Route) has not previously travelled the Silk Route!
Ancient caravans carrying goods to trade in western Asia and Europe had three different routes to choose to cross the vast expanse of very hostile desert after heading west from China’s ancient capital of Xi’an. These three routes merged at Kashgar, making it one of the most important trading centres of the world during the heyday of the Silk Route between the ...
... with a travel agent, which is asking for 400-500 USD for two of us. We consider this price as unreasonably high (so far we spent less than 300€ for 7027 km) and decided to travel via Irkeshtam by bus tomorrow. We visit the everyday Sunday market in the afternoon and after sunset I accomplished my mission to taste sheepshead, got even 1 extra brain for free :-) 7027 km since Hong ...
... lost their purity due to the amount of construction and built up areas introduced by the Chinese. This didn’t however hinder our experience, with our hotel in the heart of the old town, we avoided as much as possible what the Dalai Lama described as cultural genocide and we enjoyed and felt privileged to have been able to enter such a special place.
Our next stop in Tibet was Shigatse where we had two nights in a hotel before driving on to ...
I woke in Kashgar shattered after our 12 and half hour border crossing experience the day before. Unfortunately, there was no rest for the wicked, because we all had to go and get our vehicles registered and take a driving test before we could explore the fascinating city of Kashgar.

TravelPod Member ReviewsKashi Tianyuan International Hotel
The beds are very hard, even by Chinese standards. The rooms are comfortable if rather bland. I stayed on the 7th Floor and even at 1am the Karaoke bar on the 5th Floor was still audible. Breakfast is disappointing. Coffee is instant and the juice more like squash. There are not many non Chinese options. I have opted for toast and a fried egg. There is no wfi in the hotel but a hard connection is available in the room. There are restaurants close by and I did not eat in the hotel.
