Frankly speaking, I expected this city to be a kind of "slum" in the middle of nowhere. China is always surprising me.

新疆拥有中国六分之一的国土,乌鲁木齐是中国新疆维吾尔自治区的首府,是新疆政治、经济、文化的中心,中国西部对外开放的重要门户,是新欧亚大陆桥中国西段的桥头堡,地处亚洲大陆地理中心。行政区总面积1.2万平方公里,其中城市建成区235.9平方公里。全市总人口235万,其中城市人口就占90%以上。现辖七区一县,两个国家级开发区和一个出口加工区。







乌鲁木齐市在全新疆地区生产总值及其它各项经济指标中占在四分之一以上的比重,人均GDP超过4000美元。在中国西部12个首府、省会城市中,综合竞争实力位居前列,被誉为“中国西部明珠”。









文化独具特色。新疆古称西域,历史上乌鲁木齐就是古丝绸之路新北道上的重镇,东西方经济文化的交流中心,是西方文化和中国文化的荟萃之地,呈现出多元文化的特质,其特点是开放、热情、豪爽和奋进,是中亚地区最具活力的城市。









乌鲁木齐市北有准东油田,西有克拉玛依油田,南有塔里木油田,东有吐哈油田,且地处准噶尔储煤带的中部,市辖区内煤炭储量就达100亿吨以上,被称为“油海上的煤船”。此外还蕴藏丰富的各种有色、稀有的矿产资源。境内天山冰川和永久性积雪被称为“天然固体水库”。山区有繁茂的天然森林和天然草场,可利用的野生植物300余种。光、热和风能资源也极为丰富,有亚洲最大风力发电厂。这些自然资源,为乌鲁木齐的经济发展奠定了坚实的基础。









区位优势明显。乌鲁木齐是中国连接中亚地区乃至欧洲的陆路交通枢纽,现已成为中国扩大向西开放、开展对外经济文化交流的重要窗口。在世界商贸发达城市所占有的沿海、沿边、沿河、沿线四大地理要素中,乌鲁木齐即占沿边之利,又得沿线之益,这是新疆、也是乌鲁木齐在西部大开发中最大的地理优势。特别是随着新亚欧大陆桥的全线贯通,乌鲁木齐作为新亚欧大陆桥中国短的西桥头堡,在中国西部乃至中亚经济发展中的地位和作用日益增强。乌鲁木齐机场为中国五大门户机场之一,已开通国际、国内、区内航线100多条。





旅游业发达。乌鲁木齐自然风光优美,天山山脉分布着高山冰雪景观、山地森林景观、草原景观,为游客观光、探险提供了丰富的内容,各民族的文化艺术、风情习俗,构成了具有民族特色的旅游人文景观。新疆国际大巴扎、新疆民街、二道桥民族风情一条街等带有浓郁新疆民俗风情的景区景点,享誉国内外。丝绸之路冰雪风情游,丝绸之路服装服饰节等带有丝绸之路文化特色的节庆会展活动,已成为乌鲁木齐特有的城市名片。









产业结构比较合理。乌鲁木齐第三产业(流通服务业)较为发达,在GDP中所占的比重为61.5%。乌鲁木齐拥有百余家星级酒店,三星以上达到60余家,其中五星级酒店8家,拥有完善的服务业和完备的基础设施,为世界各地的客商创造了良好的投资合作环境;拥有健全的商贸流通体系,进出口贸易较为发达。

Wow, the expansion of Urumuqi Intl' airport is going so fast! Like the design of the new terminal, I heard that the roof of this new terminal represents the white peaks of Tianshan mountain.
