Questions and Answers About Urumqi Weather in January
Hi, i am from malaysia but stay in guangzhou. Would like to go to urumqi on 31 jan with 3kids. Is it too cold for the kids? I am planning to go there for a snow. Any recommendation on hotel and transport?
It is too cold during that period. The temperature ranges from -10℃（14℉） to -3℃（26.6℉）, you need to take down jackets and boots.
Going to Urumqi, you could take a flight, it takes around 5-6 hours. About the hotel, you could consider City Hotel - Urumqi(3 star), Culture Garden Inn - Urumqi(3 star). More options： http://www.chinahighlights.com/hotel/search-hotel.asp
In Urumqi, it will snow, but I am not sure if you could see it when you go there. I suggest you go to Harbin, where is famous for the snow sculptures and ice sculptures and it is also too cold. Please check more details on our website: http://www.chinahighlights.com/urumqi/tours.htm

Hi,what can we do during month of January? plan to go there from 24 Jan to 26 Jan 2013.
Urumqi is one of the most important cities along the Silk Road. There are some historical places we can visit without much relation to the cold weather, such as Erdaoqian Market, Xinjiang Museum, Xinjiang Silk Road Museum, Red Hill, etc. Would you need us to arrange a private tour with private car/driver and English-speaking guide for you? How many people will travel together in your group? Ruby Zhao replied on 2012-11-26
