I would say that Xinjiang is a good travel destination in the spring, summer and autumn months. Unless one likes really Siberian-type cold weather, then Xinjiang is better avoided in the winter.

It is  a unique part of China but before embarking upon such a journey to that province, one should be assured as to the current situation of events.

Urumqui is more Chinese than anything else these.  It is just like another very big Chinese city but the blending of so many ethnic minorities gives it a somewhat special field.  The city has some very pretty things to see  but it remains rather bland overall.

Kashgar is far more unique but it is also more difficult to reach and it is prone to serious earthquakes (and other kinds of disturbances these days).

It is based on points, one earns points for type of degree, at what university it came from, whether you can speak Chinese, and then age comes into play. The more points one has earned the better chance they have of staying in a contract and obtaining a work visa once they are 60. ... more ...  ... butT ..., see this one: New Rules for Foreign Teachers in China 2023In order to make it easier for foreign teachers to continue to teach in the country, the Chinese government has announced a series of new regulations that will come into effect in 2023.

In addition, any money earned from teaching will be exempt from tax. ... more ... -- icnif77
