China -> Urumqi
Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region

The capital of the Xinjiang Autonomous Region, Urumuqi is an immense, dry stretch of land and the farthest city in the world from the ocean (2250km). Along with this claim to fame, Urumuqi is a melting pot of minorities from all around the region. These minorities include: Uighurs, Kazaks, Kirgiz, Uzbeks, Tartars, Mongols, Hui, Manchus, Tajiks, and Russians…to name a few. There are over 8,000 Chinese Russians and 18,000 Manchus residing in this region. Even with all of these diverse people, Urumuqi still remains a typical Chinese city. A great way to learn about the local culture is to visit the newly restored Xinjiang Autonomous Region Museum.
