Travel Tip

You can also consider taking a flight. Over nine pairs of flights operate between Chongqing and Urumqi every day and the journey duration is about 4 hours. The full airfare is about 2,500 CNY (357 USD).

However, you can check to see if there are any discounts in advance. Sometimes, you can find very good discounts, such as 80% off in April 2020. The price for booking a seat on an airplane can sometimes be lower than the price of a soft sleeper on a normal-speed train.
