Xinjiang tourism recovering

Tourists hold a piece of paper saying, "Beautiful Urumqi welcomes you," near Xinjiang International Grand Bazaar in Urumqi, July 5, 2013. The recent Xinjiang violence has led to a downturn in Xinjiang tourism. Local tourism authorities are trying to boost the industry by offering rewards for group tourists and high-end tourism products with plane service. In addition, the Xinjiang International Tourism Shooting Festival, scheduled for October, was moved up to July. Xinjiang has received more than 21.6 million domestic tourists this year, up by 28.7 percent from a year earlier. [Photo/Xinhua]
