This is a typical itinerary for this productStop At:
Xinjiang Regional Museum (Qu Bowuguan), No.132 Xibei Road, Urumqi 830000 China
At 9:30am, your private tour guide will greet you at your central Urumqi hotel. Hop aboard your private, climate-controlled vehicle for the short journey to the Xinjiang Regional Museum (Qu Bowouguan).
Your private guide will show you around the museum, giving historical context and background. One highlight of the collection is the well-preserved tattooed mummies discovered in the desert nearby. Look out for the Beauty of Loulan, buried around 3,800 years ago near the town of Loulan in the Taklamakan Desert and first excavated in 1980. The hot, dry sands preserved her facial features remarkably well in her open coffin: and she is still beautiful today.
