A gateway between Eastern China and Tibet since the days of the Silk Road, Xining boasts a history spanning more than 2,000 years. With frigid winters but pleasantly cool summers, the city of 2.2 million people offers an escape from the heat that affects much of the rest of China, making Xining vacations particularly popular between May and September. A trip to Xining offers a chance to admire historical temples and mosques, as well as plenty of opportunities to explore the nearby nature, highlights of which include Qinghai Lake, Huzhu Beishan National Geopark, and the surrounding mountains. Explore the family-friendly attractions of Xining and add them to your vacation plans using our China trip planner.
