Welcome to Urumqi, the capital city of Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region and the farthest land from any ocean. It is the heaven of travelers for its beautiful natural scenery, profound cultural deposits and special local customs and practices. Morning our professional tour guide will meet you at your located hotel lobby. Your private day tour to Geographic Center of Asia is about an hour away from Urumqi by car. You can also see if any tours stop there on the way to NanShan or Urumqi's Number 1 Glacier.
Chinese sources indicate that foreign scientists were the first to determine that the Geographic Center of Asia was in northern Xinjiang. To confirm this claim, Chinese geographers ran a series of calculations in July of 1992. In the end, they determined the exact point of the geographic center of Asia was situated not far from Urumqi.
The official coordinates – as measured by the Chinese geographers in 1992 – were 43° 40′ 50″ North, 87° 19′ 52″ East. With these measurements in hand, the group of geographers marked the geographic center of Asia with a two meter tall wooden stake. The centre of Asia Continent, with its special geographical position, geopolitics, culture and diplomatic strategy, brings Urumqi a passport to the whole country and the world. Urumqi is no longer a marginal city, but the heart of Asia.
Traveling to the geographic center of Asia makes for a decent day trip to get out of Urumqi and enjoy the surrounding countryside, and you can also stop for some delicious kabobs and yellow noodles at the small restaurants not far from the highway turnoff.
Once entering the main gate, the 20-metres-high net frame structure which looks like an eagle spreading wings is the first thing comes into view. On both sides of the Asia center road are several glass fiber sculptures, which are originated from the folk stories and traditional cultures of different Asian countries. It symbolizes the spirit of each nation and displays the cultural essence of the people from all Asian countries.
