The Dabancheng Wind Power Station is a neat place for a quick stop on the drive to Turpan (and the return too I suppose). We stopped for a few minutes here recently to admire the gigantic wind turbines generating immense amounts of power for the...More

A vast wind farming along the toll road. Happy to know that sustainable eco-friendly sources of energy is used to electrify the city. The wind farm can be reached on the eastern side of the City Urumqi, on the way to Turpan.

We saw several "wind farms" along the Silk Road (around jintai and wuwei) but this is the mother of all wind farm. Thousands of them as far as your eyes can see. With a clear blue sky, this is quite an amazing sight. The previous...More

Alex took us to visit on Sunday and we saw a minivan of brides having their photo shoots. A unique experience. Also the fields of sunflowers. Great photo opportunities.
