airbnb Urumqi China

Urumqi is a fascinating part of China often left unmentioned when people talk about the country’s attractions. Really, there is no reason why this should be–it is a stunning, commercially-developed city that perfectly suits conventional holidays, while retaining the historical trappings from the Tang dynasty, and the beautiful surroundings that make it an ideal hub for a relaxing break. In fact, Urumqi is even in the Guinness Book of World Records as the most remote city from any sea in the world. That said, if you want to enjoy a spell by the water, Tianchi Lake–one of the region’s many wonders–is nearby for your enjoyment. In addition, the Airbnb vacation rentals, as seen below, are first-rate.
