The buses are available at the entrance of Renmin Square and Hongshan Hotel. The first bus depart at 07:40am and they are running every 8 minutes, the total ride takes about 2 hours. You can talk with the hotel staff to check which departure point is near you.

I did not see there is direct train from Urumqi to Dunhuang. Maybe you need to go to Yumen first. The price depends on the seat class and train. Generally speaking, it should be around CNY300 to 400 per person.

There are 6 rides to Kashgar and all of them stop at both stations in Urumqi. You can choose the one more convenient for you.

Thank you for your inquiry.
These trains depart from Urumqi Station, the one you mentioned at No. 1, North 6th Gaotie Road, Toutunhe District. They do not stop at South Station. You can buy the ticket at South Station but you can only board from this Urumqi Station. Hope this can help you!

Stopover at Xining from Turpan to Chengdu
Hi, this is a repeat post as the earlier post appears to be deleted.
I am planning to take the Z232 from Turpan arriving the next morning at Xining at 8.59am.Would there be sufficient time for me to go to Qinghai Lake by bus and return to take the K1060 to Chengdu at 21:40hrs on the same day. A walkabout around QL would suffice. Also,is there a direct bus to QL from Xining Railway Station.Thanks.

The time is indeed very limited. Usually it is one day or two day trip. Also, most travelers would rent a car for this trip. If by public coach, it is more time-consuming. There is a coach station near Xining Railway Station. You can buy bus ticket to Chaka, Wulan etc. But indeed for this trip, the most convenient and frequently way is to rent a car.
