My Thoughts on the Green Tree Inn: This hotel is your typical 3-star Chinese hotel that offers the necessities without going overboard. This is a great place to stay if you want a jumping off point into the southern (more Uyghur) parts of Urumqi. From here it's not a far walk to the International Bazaar, the Uyghur neighborhoods and the snack street.

It's less than 100 meters away from the International Bazaar and all the major Uyghur shopping options. What's cool about this hotel, though, is the beautiful ethnic influences in the architecture and interior design. It's not a luxury hotel, but it's definitely an experience that you'll enjoy.

They seem to be everywhere.
