Not very sure about the bus information, but I think you could ask some travel agencies for help to book the train ticket.

Yes, it will be cold in October. You can get to Turpan and then the route can be divided into south and north.North: Urumqi, Tianchi, Lake Kanas. Comparatively, the south route has more of your favored places. You can get to Korla from Turpan, then to Hetian through the desert railway, visite the Kunlun mountain, then transfer to Kashgar, arrive he Kunjerab Pass though Karakoram Highway. Wow, it is a long journey. Good Luck!

Thanks Jerry for the info. It would be helpful to join a tour group to visit these places some if not all, but upon checking with some agencies on-line the cost is extremely high does anyone know any reliable
agent locally that charges resonable . Travel between sept-oct 2009 or perhaps april-may2010

It is a long way to travel all you destinations, and I think it is hard to find areliable agency offering such a route to cover all the places you want to. You can think about this: to participate in a one or two day group in one place. Or you can find a travel companion?!

Hi Adeline!
I,m planning to visit Xinjiang at end September.
I think after arrival in Urumchi to make short jumping to Kashgar/2 hours by plane/.I know chinese man from tourist office and he,ll drive me around Kashgar.After Kashgar I,ll drive with my guide to Khotan/400 km/.Hotan is 2 days. After Hotan my way is to north across desert/500 km/ to Aksu across Tiansheng and arriving to Urumchi.I think my way across southern and most interesting part of Xinjiang will near 5 days. Rates of hotels in province is cheap.

Hello, Ms.adeline,
If you want to travel to so many places, the best way and the least costly one is to find a reliable local agency to arrange that. I see there are some others like Mrs.KL(USA) aslo want to go there. So I suggest you try to find some travel companions, the more people in a group, the less expensive!

Hello Adeline

My family are coming over in Oct and I want them to travel with me to Xinjiang. We will start off in Guangzhou or meet them in Beijing.
But the Singaporeans need convincing.
