I visited the Grape Valley in October and it was very disappointing. This place is probably one of the biggest tourist traps in Turpan - there's nothing to see but grapes, and you can see grapes everywhere in Turpan without paying a 60RMB entry fee. Give this place a miss, it's definitely not worth a visit.

This desert oasis is almost 500 feet below sea level and is home to poplar trees and grape arbors. The local culture is dominated by Turkish speaking Uighurs and a 2000 year old irrigation system.

Not surprised with hot & dry climate, Turpan produces some of the best & beautiful grape arbors. We visited to a local home, he introduced the types of grapes and ate some sweetest rock melon watermelon in Turpan. The Grape Valley is one of the key attractions of Turpan Day Tour too. I bought 2kg of dried raisins back from... More

We saw grape arbors in Turpan where we ate lunch in a lovely family restaurant under a grape arbor, so we did not quite understand why we were looking at grape less arbors again. Workers were pruning them to the blaring tune of the Gangnam Style song. In a quiet corner further back, we discovered a lovely traditional house with... More

The Chinese have managed to grow some tough grapes with thick vines that they manage to protect year to year from extremes of hot and cold. Come in October when the grapes are in season for the best experience. Quaint and quiet nonetheless.

Go here. You can check out the beautiful grape arbors, have a nice lunch in a local restaurant under the grapes, and see the places where they dry the grapes to make raisins.

We expected a wonderful valley with wine-tasting etc as in Europe, South Africa, Australia or California. We looked for wine tasting opportunities in all the valley: this is not available. This so-called "grape valley" is in fact some kind of poorly executed Disneyland with grapes growing in the valley (hence the name). The only purpose of the place seems to... More

This was not much other than a road flanked by wines, and finaly, you coud buy rasins to overprise. My advise, have a look, and if you realy like rasisn buy them somwhere else.

Another attempt to create a tourist destination from nothing. This is nothing but grape vines and weird, tacky re-enactments from various Chinese history. Oh, and many opportunities to sell you dried fruit and tchotchkes. SKIP
