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).

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
