About 30 minutes drive from the airport. The Bazaar sells all sorts of stuff ranging from jewelry (jade, gold), fragrances, spices, petrified items, clothing, food and souvenirs. Many different ethnicities can be seen: Uyghurs, Kazakh, Mongols, European, Han Chinese etcetc

Seriously it’s just handcrafts and extremely touristy ones at that. You’ll be charged 2-3x the normal price for anything you buy here. There is maybe one alleyway that is picturesque, but otherwise nothing cool. They don’t even sell food in this market - according to...More

Free of entrance but you will definitely spend money here! Everything is so exotic to foreigners! A place must visit!

With much anticipation, we thought it would be a bazaar like the one in Istanbul or Marrakech but it turned out to be rather small with limited variety as well. However if you are interested in dried fruits, silk scarves, etc. they have plenty. Like...More

You can buy all kinds of native/local crafts in this central market/shopping plaza. It could be busy during the weekend and holidays. The central tower inside the market costs ¥50 to go up, which is expensive but offers an excellent view of this city.

This is both local and international shopping centre. Certain things are very pricey for a tourist especially if you don't speak either mandarin or Uyghur. No English speakers in any shops. However, Russian speakers are easier to find. The place is huge and easy to...More

Several Malls adjacent to one another. Part of the thrill is in the haggling. Except that they do not speak any languages other than local Urumqi language and mandating. It is pale when compared to the bazaar in Istanbul. The open space/square has some local...More

I am sure I recalled seeing them, but i doubt they were good quality. Not in the Bazaar area anyway. There is a more affluent part to Urumqi... Maybe better quality there.
