Itinerary - 2015
Host Town for the Event
  • Hami, Xinjiang Province, China 

    Note: The best route to get to the host town of Hami (also known as Kumul) is to fly into an international gateway city (Beijing, Shanghai or Guangzhou) and then take domestic flight(s) to Hami – there is one direct flight a day or you can transfer through Urumqi. Booking domestic flights in China can be challenging through foreign travel agents. You can contact us for details on how to arrange these bookings by emailing info@4deserts.com.
