Turpan, which is less than 200 km from Urumqi, is the last stop along the Lanzhou-Urumqi rail line. It takes between 4 and 5 hours to reach Urumqi. Although booking train tickets in Turpan is fairly easy, considering the location of the railway station (about 60 km north of the city) rail is not the most convenient means of transport to or from Turpan.
Bus is a better alternative to train for traveling around the neighboring cities and towns, including Urumqi (daily), Hami (daily), Korla (daily), Aksu (twice a week), and Kashgar (three times a week). Since the new highway has been completed and put into use, the time to drive between Turpan and Urumqi has been substantially shortened to around two hours. Every 30 minutes, there is a minibus to Daheyan, where the railway station for Turpan is located. The local bus station is near the bazaar.Travelers are advised to either ask a travel agent to arrange tickets or to get to the station early to buy in person. Be prepared for some hard bargaining too!
