“Pit stop”

Dabancheng Ancient Town
Reviewed June 2, 2017

Another ancient gem in the middle of nowhere turn left. Dabancheng Ancient Town is actually nicely situated and wonderful views of the area and the structures from a time long ago. Not far off the highway and worth a quick stop.

The best part of the Urumqi to Turpan drive is the pass through Dabancheng. You can stop at this tourist attraction for a snack and a sense of place (whilst whistling the tune of "The girl from Dabancheng" through your teeth.) If you don't know about this song, go to the Wang Lou Bin Museum in Grape Valley, Turpan (right, Alex?).

To get there on the way to Turpan, you have to take the Dabancheng exit and drive about 14 kms through the town. Coming from Turpan is easier; the Ancient Town is just off the highway on the north and easy to get back on, too.
