The symbol of Urumqi

The hill and the tower are symbols of this old city. Even the city is becoming more and more modern, the history of the people here is still concentrated here.

Location almost centre of the Urumqi city. Nice views to allaround the city. Some kind of small temple area. Im not sure about the religion. 10 rmb for visit inside the temple. Best thing in this park was the ferrish wheel. From there you can see park and city around. 30 rmb for ferrish wheel. Sorry my bad english.

The view of Urumqi is great from up here! I probably arrived 20 mins too late and missed the Golden Sun.... But should have stayed an extra 10 mins after sunset as I missed the pagoda all lit up. How do i know this? It was lit up when i hopped onto the bus at the bottom of the hill... More

The RED HILL Park is centrally located and easily reached by public transports. It is near the SOUTHERN AIRLINES PEARL HOTEL. Many shops and restaurants around the Park. It is a good and quite tiring climb to the top; whereby one gets a good view of the surround (on a good and clear day, as most of the time the... More

The park is very well-maintained and clean - there are artificial lakes, areas for the kids to play, pagodas, food vendors. It seems to be a very popular spot with the locals - we visited during the weekend and it was full of... More

The park is just a park, but it is well maintained, has nice temples and pagodas, and if you're willing to pay for the tickets, there are rides for kids. All in all my group really enjoyed it.

Not too many tourist areas in Urumqi. This is fun, got a view, and a pace where you can simply wander around.

Very popular with the locals, the park offers superb views of the city and is a pleasant place to spend a few hours in, either strolling or lounging.

Spring had not yet arrived, so nothing blooming and no water in the ponds. So, it wasn't a pretty when I saw it. I did not go to the top but wish I did. A nice stop for a few minutes.
