Which is the best city / Town to visit in Sinkiang province ? and what is it famous for?


Country: China


I am assuming you mean Xinjiang in the northwest, in which case the largest city is Urumqi, but the most interesting cities are along the old Silk Road running south of the Takla Makan from Kashgar, on the Kyrgiz and Tajik borders, to Turfan.
Thank you Carl McMahan for your time and contribution -- Yes it is Xinjiang - Urumqi is a big city but more towards the north west in a plain area.

whereas and Kashgar is an old trading town nestled in shadow of the Karakoram Mountains in the South west corner ,now a city at the bottom of Khunjerab pass
from Pakistan and at cross roads for the old silk route.

Any idea of the specialties of these places is welcome.
