Taklamakan Desert is the largest fluid desert in China and its absolutely appealing beauty is single.

The Takla Makan Desert is situated in the middle of the Tarim Basin. 'Takla Makan' in Uigur language means 'you can get into it but can never get out' so the desert is also called 'the Sea of Death'. It covers an area of over 33, 700 square kilometers (over 13,000 square miles), thus is the world's second largest shifting-sand desert and the largest desert in China.

I will be visiting North Xinjiang next month. I will be returning to Urumqi from Yining on the last day. I understand it will be a very long drive back. Is there anything interesting to see along the way? If not, I am thinking of taking a flight back from Yining to Urumqi. Is there an airport in Yining?
