    I don't know too much about other cities in China than those we all know, but I read sometime ago about the development of tours through several Chinese cities in the west of the country.

    Perhaps through this reading you can come across with new tourism destinations and find out more about their attractions:


    24 Cities in West China Establish Tourism Development Alliance
    From:The Government Website of Shaanxi Province

    On April 11, the establishment of Tourism Development Alliance of Cities in West China comprising of 24 cities was announced at the venue of the National 100-city Tourism Promotion Week.

    According to Zhou Aiquan, Director General of Xi’an Tourism Bureau, the alliance was comprised of 24 cities in 11 provinces in west China, namely Xi’an, Chongqing, Chengdu, Guangyuan, Leshan, Naning, Guilin, Guiyang, Zunyi, Kunming, Hohhot, Dunhuang, Jiayuguan, Tianshui, Urumchi, Xining, Lanzhou, Yinchuan, Hanzhong, Xianyang, Ankang, Yan’an, Weinan and Baoji. The alliance targets at domestic and overseas tourism market. By developing 11 travel routes such as new trip to Shaanxi and Gansu, new century trip to Sichuan and Shaanxi, venture trip to Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, trip to grassland in northwest China, Yunnan and Guizhou sightseeing boundary trip, new long march red trip and west China culture heritage trip, it wants to promote the “going to west China” tourism brand.

    It is said that total area of west China accounts for 71.4% of that of the country. West China boasts unique natural conditions, beautiful natural landscape, strange landform, extraordinary scenic spot, and diversified customs. Tourism resources of west China feature high capacity, diversity, uniqueness and monopoly. The western development strategy greatly promotes economic and social development of west China. In particular, it significantly improves the infrastructure conditions such as traffic conditions and makes the regional cooperation between cities in the west and acceleration of development of tourism industry possible.

    Zhou Aiquan said that the establishment of the alliance will set up a brand new cooperation mechanism between tourism cities in west China and will provide a platform for tourism cooperation in west China. Besides, it will form the structure of large industry, large market and greater development in west China. Target of the alliance is to realize resource sharing, market co-establishment, win-win cooperation, image building, market expansion, industry rejuvenation, and bring the development of tourism industry in west region to a new stage.

    Re: Cities To Visit In Western China

    Nice sharing Alicke but I'm little confused about the Grand Bazaar. I'm tourist and like to visit in different places around the world. According to my experience the Grand Bazaar is located in Istanbul not in Urumqi. It is one of the most famous and major attraction of Istanbul. What you think about it? Am i right or not? Please search it from Google and tell me?

    Grand Bazaar is located in Urumqi Xinjiang. This bazaar is also held in Istanbul. But I shared about Urumqi Grand Bazaar. It is an Islamic bazaar and here all kinds of shops are outstanding. Islamic culture design, food plaza, theatre and churches also are marvelous. Here global and domestic delights buildings are very good.
    I am planning to visit again this bazaar after completing my boston to Philadelphia tour with my family. It is really one of the best places of the world for shopping. Now I hope so your confusion is terminated.

    Re: Cities To Visit In Western China

    Yes of course Beatrice; daren is right I also visited Yunnan with my friends and family. I totally agreed with daren, it is a nice and beautiful place to visit. There are lots of things to enjoy. We visited the capital of Yunnan Kunming that got a name ‘Spring City’ because of its mild temperature all year around. The temperature difference between day and night is just are 12-20℃, especially in spring and winter. Therefore if you ever go there in this season take some warm clothes with you. We also attended the festival of ethnic minority group during this tour. According to my point of view March to October is the best time to visit this region. During these months plenty of fruits and flowers are bloom.

    harry! I think you have visited this region in detail that is why you know about different famous places. Elephant Trunk Hill is one of my favourite hill . It is situated in the western bank. It became popular among the tourist due to its structure its look like the trunk of an elephant. Due to its unique structure it attracts most of the visitors attention to it. It receives many complements like “Moon over the water”.
