Hostels in Urumqi

Post by elliotalmost »

Hi guys,

I’m heading from Xining to Urumqi in mid-late May. I’ll have to stay at least a night in Urumqi to fly to Tashkent. Based on the forum posts from early 2019 it looks like only a few hotels are allowing foreigners to register. I checked Trip.com as I read they will pay the difference if a hotel doesn’t allow foreigners but it still leaves me blowing out my budget.

I’ll be heading back to Urumqi in July overland by looping through the Pamir Highway so will be spending two stints there as a flight spot. For anyone from Australia, Urumqi has incredibly cheap flights back to Sydney. E.g $250ish with a 2 hour layover.

If anyone has been recently and could update it’d be much appreciated!!

Thanks <3

Elliot
