If someone were to ask me my opinion on the best China travel guide for their trip to Xinjiang I would tell them very simply, “There isn’t one”.
All of the major China travel books provide an ocean of information about Beijing, Shanghai, and Hong Kong while only gently dipping their toes into the enormous province of Xinjiang. After years of fielding questions from FarWestChina readers who are seeking advice about traveling in the province I finally decided that it was time to do my part to fix this void of information. So I wrote my own travel guide.
I’m a perfectionist, however, which means that such an undertaking would not be easy. From July to October, a period during which I had plenty of free time with no access to the internet, I spent countless hours researching, traveling and writing about the province I love most: Xinjiang. A guide on the entire province would be far-too difficult I realized, so I shifted my focus to the three most-traveled cities in the region: Turpan, Urumqi, and Kashgar.
I’m finally ready to unveil the first ebook in this series of three entitled Turpan: Exploring Xinjiang’s Ancient Ruins, and for those of you who will be traveling to Xinjiang this summer I’m happy to announce that it’s going to be the most affordable guide you’ve ever downloaded. Why? Because for the 1st month IT’S FREE.
