Top 10 Airbnb Vacation Rentals In Hohhot, China

airbnb Hohhot China
| 5 min read

Steeped in history, culture, and myth is the Inner Mongolian city of Hohhot in the northernmost reaches of China. The name of the city in Mongolian means “Blue City” as the color blue in Mongol culture is associated with the sky, eternity, and purity. Hohhot has a diverse cultural makeup due to its population that consists mostly of Han Chinese and native Mongols. This is most evident in the Hohhot street scene where you will see a wide diversity of ethnic minority influences, especially when it comes to food. Some of the most famous are hot pot and shaomai, a traditional Chinese dumpling served as dim sum.

Another area where you will see ethnic minority influences in on Tongdao Road in the old town area. The exterior of the buildings is decorated with Islamic and Mongol designs. Hohhot is an ideal destination to escape modern-day pressure due to the magnificent natural beauty of the surrounding grasslands as well as important cultural sites such as the Dazhao Temple, Five-Pagoda Temple, and the Xilituzhao Palace.
