When it comes to getting the best from your travels, it's worth remembering that Korla is merely the beginning; Xinjiang has been blessed with an abundance of wonderful things to do and see.
Every place on Earth has its unique history and the Xinjiang area has its own fair share of stories to tell. The ruins here provide a great snapshot to the past.
Hot air ballooning is the perfect activity for travelers wanting to bring out their inner-daredevil.
One of the attractions of traveling lies in discovering new flavors, tastes and aromas. Take the time to visit the region's restaurants. No trip to this region is complete without getting a taste of mutton and pilau rice and Xinjiang big plate chicken.
Learn some Mandarin to charm the locals in Korla. "Nǐ yào bú yào gēn wǒ tiàowǔ" is Mandarin for "Would you like todance with me?" Yet another useful example is "Zhèiwèi xiānsheng huì qīngdān" (This gentleman/lady will pay for everything).
When your time is up in this unique place, say goodbye the way locals do, with a hearty "Zàijiàn."
