Woolen sweaters and long woolen underpants with leather clothing or a thick, long overcoat are necessary when you go outside. Woolen sweaters are fine indoors. In addition, wear a thick hat and gloves when going outdoors.
Another traditional festival for Muslims called Eid al-Adha (古尔邦节) occurs on November 28. Muslims in Urumqi go shopping to celebrate the festival, and you'll get a better understanding of Muslim culture during the month. What's more, there are fewer tourists in Urumqi this month, making travel affordable this time of the year. See our Urumqi Tours.
