Introducing Xīníng

Perched on the eastern edge of the Tibetan plateau, this lively provincial capital makes a perfect springboard from which to dive into the surrounding sights and on to the more remote regions of Qīnghǎi and beyond. The food and lodging are good, the air is fresh, and the populace is an interesting mix of Muslim (Huí, Salar and Uighur), Tib- etan and Han Chinese.
