Urumqi Grand Bazaar closed?

Postby edblax » Fri May 11, 2018 11:39 am

Hi folks

We will be in central Asia for the next couple of months so thought it was worth signing up here.

We went to the new (ish) grand bazaar in Urumqi yesterday at about 6pm and apart from half a dozen shops in the courtyard it was all shut up. We didn't see anything online about it being closed on certain days or at this time, so just wondering if anyone here knows what the story might be.

Surely your hostel/hotel should know? Let us know what they say!

Unfortunately we didn't get a chance to ask and had already left Urumqi before I posted the message. Maybe someone else will come along with an answer!
