An opportunity to visit a family that grew grapes and processed into sun dried raisins. At the end of the visit, there were raisins for sale. The price was higher than in the market. However, the money goes directly to the farmer. A way to improve the living standard of the Uighur family.

All in all a pretty touristy set up with not too much of interest. I cannot stress strongly enough to avoid tasting the wine at all costs unless you enjoy the taste of bleach mixed with cheap vodka

Avoid this AAAAA chinese tourism board rated attraction. It is designed for Chinese mass tourists. There is nothing worth seeing or doing here.

Grape Valley is an ordinary vineyard like we found in California or Barossa Valley in Adelaide, australia. The difference is the involvement of local farmers, mostly Uyghur in the system. I liked visiting the farmers' houses. The houses were unique, grapes were also grown in the house yard and the grape trees were used to cover the yard like as... More

The GRAPE VALLEY is certainly a MUST for the tourists living in countries without vines !!! The attraction is included in all tours in TURPAN. The best season to visit is around JUNE-AUGUST, as this is the season for the grapes. There many varieties of grapes and raisins on sales on the tourists sites. However, refrain buying grapes or raisins... More

The grape valley is a place where grow a lot of grapes, figs, and many other fruits famous in xing jiang. I lot of shops selling you their produce, a spot you can consider if you have time.

If you have ever been to the Grape Farms of Europe, South Africa, Australia or the USA - don't go here - you will be very disappointed. There is a very high entrance fee to see grapes growing in the tourist trap. Although the grapes are the table grape variety and not the wine variety, there is a small wine... More

Although I visited many years ago now I was amazed by this green valley in an otherwise desert region. Flowing water along streets with grapes growing overhead. Not tempted by the boiled sheeps heads at the night market!

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.
