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

Potentially a nice experience given the location and architecture but the prevalence of signs at each of the homes '20Rmb a photo' as a means of revenue diminished its appeal. The locals were not at all friendly and it seemed, rather than sell handcrafts or fruit, they all opted for charging for any photos you may have wanted to take... More

The great part about this place is because of all the overhead grape vines it offers cool in the Turpan heat. Good time to visit is just before the harvesting begins.

Visited in March 2013 which is definately the wrong season. The entire place seemed dusty, dirty and grey, very uninspiring. I'm sure at the right time of year would be a lot better and greener.
