With a natural landscape possessing glaciers, grassland, desert, mountains, and lakes, Xinjiang has become a “hot” destination in recent years.

Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Regional Tourism Bureau figures show that during the 30-year period of reform and opening up, until the end of 2007, Xinjiang received a total of 21.7 million domestic tourists. Income from tourism reached 205 billion yuan.
