With a natural landscape possessing glaciers, grassland, desert, mountains, and lakes, Xinjiang has become a "hot" destination in recent years. By the end of last year, inbound tourism surpassed the total population of Xinjiang for the first time (Xinjiang has a total population of 20.5 million by 2006); and Xinjiang has been ranked among the major tourist areas, according to Xinhua Net.

Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Regional Tourism Bureau figures show that during the 30-year period of reform and opening up, until the end of 2007, Xinjiang received a total of 21.7 million domestic tourists. Income from tourism reached 205 billion yuan. Three 5 A -level scenic areas - Kanas, Tianchi of the Tianshan Mountains, Putaogou of Turpan - as well as the Xinjiang International Tourism Festival and Winter Fair have all become famous tourist attractions at home and abroad.
