How to get to Urumqi to Kashgar

By air:

There is a cheap flight from Kashgar to Urumqi for 980 Yuan, flight tickets are for sale in all hotels. For more flight information visit

By bus:

There is one sleeping bus, 187 Yuan for a bed above, 210 Yuan for a bed under, the video is quite noisy if you happen to get the bed just under the speaker. The beds are narrow and short (160 cm) and the way is very wobbly. The bus does 25 hours during the trip from Kashgar to Urumqi; They leave at 17:00-18:00 Xingjang time from the new bus station in Kashgar. I had a sleepless night during this trip thanks to small bed, bad roads and loud music.

By train:

The trip from Kashgar to Urumqi costs about 300 Yuan and takes about 30 hours.


Urumqi is a completely different world than Kashgar, it is a typical Chinese big city with many tall, modern buildings and a very Chinese atmosphere. You don't see any more Uygur.

By public transport in Urumqi:

A taxi ride from the bus station to hotel Bogeda costs 11 Yuan, the taximeter works, as in most cities in China the drivers use the meter in an honest way.

Budget hotels in Urumqi:

Hotel Bogeda: the entrance hall to this hotel looks like one from a 5 star hotel. Don't let yourself be frightened away, they have dormitory rooms with 4 beds for 25 Yuan per bed. For more budget hotel information visit
