Went to Shiwei during early June. It wasn't crowded yet but I saw a lot of new hotels/guesthouse/Inn were built to accommodate the travelling peak period in July.

a little too touristy but good overall, very interesting mix of China and Russian that you won't see anywhere else, I went in the fall so town was cold and quiet, nice horse ride around the river, would love to go back in the summer time.
