Dining along the Silk Road

Some local hotels in the small towns can't offer coffee during breakfast. If you can't open your eyes without coffee in the morning, please bring some coffee with you.

Xinjiang has various local foods. Mutton is the main dish during the meals. For example, Xinjiang roast mutton, Xinjiang kebabs, Stewed Mutton Cubes, Rice Eaten with the Hands etc. In star-rated hotels or big restaurants, they provide you both Chinese and west cuisine and you do not need to worry about sanitation. But if you love to taste local snacks or if you are traveling in remote areas, we would suggest that you have prior vaccination against hepatitis for the food preparation or handling in some restaurants in some of these remote areas may not be properly sanitized. Please consult your doctor before your trip starts.
