Getting on the train at Urumuqi
I will soon be traveling to Urumqi and I'm looking for hostel / guest house type accomodations - in other words, cheap. Anybody know of any places? The cheapest thing I'm hearing in $35 USD per night. Surely not!
Althoug I didn't visit Urumqi before, I am sure you can find a quite clean and comfortable hotel with the price of $35per night. don't worrying.
Accommodation for budget travellers? Surely below USD$35. I was using the Lonely Planet Guide book when I was there and I only paid something like USD$10 for a double room.

China is generally ideal for budget tourist since the transport is cheap, food is cheap and accommodation is also cheap if you know where to find them.
Ask as much as you can (of course in Mandarin) and you will find that the local people will try thrie best to help! The Lake Tian Qi is a must see location where you can stay inside the local people's tent for one night or two, you can try their food and drink and you can also lying on the grassy slope at night and watching the shinning stars hanging in the night sky.
"Big Chinese City"
When I visited Xinjiang in 1992 for the first time I skipped Urumqi on my way to Turfan as I thought, that Turfan is much more attractive. And I am still sure that was the right decision.
This time I stopped and stayed for two days in urumqi as I was on a guided tour and I did not have any choice.
But Urumqi is quite a surprise to me.Though it is a big city now with the typical highrise buildings it is still a very interesting city with mosques and busy bazaars and very nice people.
"When in Urumqi do not miss:"
- the big fruit and vegetables market
- the big bazaar
- the Central Province Museum
"Next Stop on my Trip in June 2007:"
Turpan-Page is finished - enjoy!
