Natural beauty, varied traditions, culinary delights attracting more visitors than ever.

As summer sets in, tourists have begun flocking to southern Xinjiang to enjoy the region's unique atmosphere, born of its special location and culture.

In Kashgar, China's westernmost city, which enjoys up to 18 hours of sunshine during the summer, tourists wander the mazelike alleys of the Ancient Town, which dates back some 2,000 years. Immersing themselves in neighborhoods that are somewhat reminiscent of the Middle East, they can sample Uygur delicacies, which offer new taste experiences.
