Urumqi Travel Tips
- Spring is refreshing while a little cold. It snows occasionally.
- Summer is beautiful when flowers are in full boom and grasslands turn to green. It can be hot but the beauty is everlasting.
- Autumn is the best season to visit Urumqi. As the weather cools, the city is shrouded by colours and scent of ripe fruits.
- Snow is common in winter and it's very cold. It's the low season, less crowded and cheaper to travel.
