CGTN published this video item, entitled “Watch: What is Xinjiang’s Economic Zone like? 乌鲁木齐赏街景” – below is their description.
CGTN crew have arrived in Urumqi, Xinjiang’s capital. Like any other Chinese city, Urumqi has witnessed tremendous growth over the past years, with the city filled with skyscrapers and shopping centers. What makes the city stand out is its unique landscape and street sight. As autumn rolls around, myriad colors turn the city into a park, and Mount Bogda, a snow-capped mountain peak all year round, is within sight. Join CGTN reporters Li Jianhua and Zhu Danni to zip through the streets of Urumqi. #AmazingXinjiangCGTN YouTube Channel

In This Story: Xinjiang
Xinjiang, an autonomous territory in northwest China, is a vast region of deserts and mountains. It’s home to many ethnic minority groups, including the Turkic Uyghur people. The ancient Silk Road trade route linking China and the Middle East passed through Xinjiang, a legacy that can be seen in the traditional open-air bazaars of its oasis cities, Hotan and Kashgar.
