China’s ancient Silk Road spans 3 vast provinces, stretching from the city of Xian in Shaanxi province through to the westerly terminus at Kashgar in Xinjiang province, close to the border of Kyrgyzstan. With such a vast range of terrain and topography, there are significant climatic changes as you follow this hallowed trading route across China. Xian’s continental climate makes it pleasant year-round, with more rain during the summer months, mirrored by the cities of Lanzhou, Jiayuguan and Dunhuang in Gansu province. It is only as you cross into the more rugged, arid terrain of Xinjiang that the variations in temperature become more apparent. Summers are scorching and winters are bone-chillingly cold, with snow on the mountains and huge temperature variations from morning to night. May is a spectacular time to traverse the Silk Road, as the snow begins to melt and the meadows spring to life with lush green pasture and wild flowers. Autumn is similarly pleasant, with less extreme temperatures and whilst the summers are very hot, the oasis towns across the desert region are bountiful with flowers and fruits and the humidity is low in the westerly reaches of the Silk Road.

To start planning your holiday to Hilton Urumqi


The Hilton Urumqi is a contemporary hotel set at the heart of this remote city in northwest China, at the foot of the Tien Shan mountains, once part of the ancient Silk Road that connected Europe with the east.

Located in downtown Urumqi, the capital Xinjiang province and gateway to the Tian Shan mountains, the Hilton Urumqi is a comfortable, contemporary hotel at the heart of this sprawling city that was once an important stop on the Silk Road. Situated at the heart of the CBD, adjacent to the Xinjiang International Convention and Exhibition Centre, the Hilton offers all the comforts of an international standard hotel in this remote yet remarkably developed city, close to China’s borders with Kazakhstan and Mongolia. 

The hotel’s rooms and suites are simply yet comfortably designed, with plenty of natural light and pared back décor. Views are out across the city skyline or towards the local temple, whilst the Suites (located on the higher floors) look out towards the distant mountains. All the hallmarks of an international standard hotel are featured in every room category, from complimentary Wi-Fi and air conditioning to flat screen televisions with satellite channels.   

With four different dining options, you are spoilt for choice with restaurants at the Hilton Urumqi. Sample regional Xinjiang specialities at Yuxi or fine Lebanese cuisine at Silk Road, feast on international dishes from the open kitchens of U Café or sip on local teas or freshly ground coffees at the Lobby Lounge. The Hilton Urumqi is also home to a fully equipped fitness centre with city views, and a large heated indoor pool, perfect for unwinding after a long journey or a day exploring Xinjiang province.
