Extraordinarily picturesque! A stream raced through the old mud brick town. The mosque is the focal point. Locals sell raisins, dates, nuts and fresh fruit of their own production (mulberries were ripe when we went). It won’t take you long to stroll through town. You cannot go to the Buddhist cave area anymore. There is a family that runs a “restaurant right after the entrance to the town. Rice and noodles, but tasty and handy .

Although it is quite some distance from Turpan, Tuyoq Village is a fascinating place to visit and the surrounding desert landscape is incredible. Be sure to walk further up the hill for amazing views overlooking the plains, as well as glimpses of another tiny ancient village carved out of the clay hillside.

We spent a few hours there during China's national holiday and surprisingly it wasn't too busy.
Highlights: the green mosque, climbing up the side of the hill to get a birds eye view and chatting with the local people (in our broken Chinese). Lots of dried fruit for sale. Little adobe buildings everywhere are preserved well. The place has a nice feeling to it.

Tuyugou (or Tuyoq) is a beautiful traditional village not far from Flaming Mountains. Visiting the village is a great way to understand how Uighurs live - we were very lucky as we got to spend the night with a local family, an incredible experience that I recommend to everyone. Most of the mud buildings are still in good conditions and there is even a small market at the exit of the village (unfortunately it was closed when we visited).

The village is a sacred place for the Uighur-muslims so it's a shame that the local government is turning it into a tourist attraction. They are now charging a 30RMB entry fee and have put signs and directions all around the village. I really hope that the village will not lose its authenticity.

I loved this village. We could wander along its quiet street. The place is not too touristic, there only a few tourist when i was visiting. There was a flood recently that made some of the house collapsed.there was an undergoing construction in the cave area so i could not visit it.the old village tomb area was also beautiful.

Further east than Bezeklik Caves, a great drive, interesting place and good for lunch. Eat in the courtyard at the top of the steps (guides take their groups here), buy dried mulberries, and drink chilled mulberry juice (or add vodka later).

Be aware that some villagers are not very happy with their lives being treated as a tourist attraction. If you want to step off the beaten path, don't expect a welcome.
