The Official FarWestChina Xinjiang Map
This Xinjiang map was custom designed specifically for my Xinjiang Travel Guide. It’s not going to be useful as a map guide for your travels, but it is a good general reference Xinjiang map. If you use this, please be kind and include a link back to this website. I spent a lot of money to have this and many other maps designed!
Road Map of Xinjiang (in Chinese)
A few years ago, once I got my Chinese driver’s license, I bought a Chinese road map. The good news is that it’s very accurate. The bad news is that it’s all in Chinese. If you can’t read Chinese, it might not be very useful for you other than to show you the available paths.
Xinjiang GDP Density Map
This map shows the distribution of wealth around Xinjiang. You’ll notice high concentrations around Karamay (in the north) and Korla (in the middle). This is because these two areas are heavy oil producers.
Xinjiang Ethnic Population Density Maop
The above map shows the distribution of China’s ethnic groups in Xinjiang back in 2010 (it’s only changed slightly since then). You’ll notice that the south is more heavily Uyghur while the north has more Han, Kazakh and others.
