14-Day Oriental Express: Xinjiang Tour with Yangtze River Cruise

The best season for tourism in Xinjiang is autumn and more specifically from August to September. During these two months the weather is cool but the many varieties of fruit reach maturity attracting many tourists from within China and abroad..

Being far away from the ocean, the climate in Xinjiang is characterized by a large temperature disparity between daytime and evening time, much sunlight (2500 to 3500 hours per year), dry air and low precipitation (150 millimeters or so annually). Generally speaking, the temperature in North Xinjiang is higher in winter but lower in summer when compared with the temperature in Southern Xinjiang. Moreover, in most parts of Xinjiang there is a big disparity on temperature between daytime and evening time during the transition period from summer to autumn. The local people make two lines to express the climate feature: taking on a heavy coat in the morning and changing it into a light shirt at noon to enjoy a mater melon (a popular fruit in summer) while baking oneself beside a warm furnace.
