Hami Things to Do

    Hami Kings, called 'Islamic Kings' by Qing Dynasty Chinese emperors, ruled this region from the 1600s to the early 1900s, some lie here to rest in magnificent surroundings. In 1945, after his tomb was ransacked, one of three original Arab missionaries who arrived during the Tang Dynasty was relocated here as well.

    The complex is located ~2km south of the city center.

    The city may be fairly standard, but the outskirts and alleys contain more history than I could wrap my brain around. I spent three days wandering and still only scratched the surface.

Hami Off The Beaten Path

    The only time I drank water in China was in Hami. On the outskirts of town, the underground spring that gives life to the oasis rushes up into a manmade channel where locals dipped hands in for a drink. Cool, crisp, pure. Outstanding.

    (this is not the water that comes out of the tap, so don't drink the water anywhere else!)

    Another old school, this one of the young people's variety. My guide (a uni student who I ran into in the old alleys and took me on a little tour on his moped) said his great great great great grandfather taught here.

    Situated among the narrow roads of the old city lies a building my friend says has been a place for men to study the holy books for hundreds of years - something of a miracle if true, considering history.
