It's safe if you aren't a Han settler or police officer.

Hi Ammia, I've been living in Urumqi for a couple of months. The streets are quite calm and I've never seen any violence of any sort during my time here. The big problem doesn't seem to be violence, but theft: pickpockets are a problem.

I can't say very much for the rest of the province, pesonally I'd be a little more cautious going to the south of Xinjiang and wouldn't travel alone.

The landscape, at least in the north, is really beautiful. I can't wait to get some time to see more of XInjiang.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
