Food in the city -
As far food is concerned, this city has a lot to offer. Muslim food is also available in plenty over here. Even the "nan" (bread) can be found with great ease. Meat is sold separately for Muslims and non-Muslims. Even you have a choice to buy live animal and make it slaughter. A lot of animals are available in the market. To name a few, lamb, cow, chicken, rabbit etc. Vegetables and fruits are presented at very cheap rates and superb quality. All seasonal vegetables and fruits can be found here or should we say, even more. These can be found easily in local green grocery markets or from hawkers. Foreign students had developed liaison with a cafe in the campus. The lady over here prepares a menu according to the students’ wishes and serves them the whole month with very nominal charges. To have an idea of charges for eating in this cafe 2 times a day, one can well imagine that it is worth nearly half the amount eating out. It is not said here that if you eat out, it will be expensive. This city is full of small restaurants and cafes. Any time you can go out and have anything you want from "Seekh tikka", "Chapain", fried fish to all sort of Chinese dishes. And you will not believe it that eating out is not as expensive as we think, although the choice of restaurants does matter.

Shopping in the city As the economic center, Urumqi plays a leading role in the autonomous region. During recent years, big shopping centers, department stores and supermarkets have started springing up all over the city. These large stores bring great convenience to the public as well as speed up the economic growth of the city. To experience the life of the minority region, The International Grand Bazaar in Er Dao Qiao is an essential place to visit. It is a magnificent commercial architectural complex embodied with a strong flavor of Islam. It consists of a Banquet Hall, Gourmet Square, Sightseeing Tower, Open-air Stage and Islam Mosque, and encompasses a total space of 100,000 square meters. The Bazaar furnishes different kinds of goods made in Xinjiang as well as other neighboring countries, and offers all the ethnic food and souvenirs you would anticipate. Sometimes pleasant negotiation with venders is required.
