My friend and I arrived by public bus from Urumqi. That meant we still needed to walk about 5km in the heat to arrive. The Marker is very much in the middle of nowhere, but it was quite interesting. A nice monument, but it would...More

We took a taxi from urumqi and was charged 200yuan for 4 of us. The road is very good except when the driver lost his way, we ended up at the bumpy road at the nearby village. However, we enjoyed the scenery at the village...More

Well if you are in the area you and/or have the time you might as well come to the Centre of Asia! We are at the beginning of a drive around Western Asia (Caucuses and the ‘stans) and figured why not touch the Centre of...More

There is nothing much there except the marker and two rows of sculptures and some art pieces. It's very windy as it's quite an empty and vast land surrounding the areas, so prepare for the cold wind, if you go in November like us. Just...More

We easily found a driver to take us by just asking people. Long, bumpy travel which already is interesting enough if you mostly only know the big city life. Great sceneries and an amazing feeling when you stand in the center of this continent, all...More

The scenic drive was under construction when we went there. Terrible road, so no visitors, so no amenities, so no maintenance. Only someone to collect ticket money. Good for a post-apocalyptic photo shoot.

This is the Centre Point of Asia Continent. However, my friend and I was the only visitor to the place on that day. There is no shop selling gifts. No food stall and no explanation regarding the place.
