We arrived by subway to Erdaoqiao Station Exit C. There's a Carrefour Supermarket inside the Bazaar. Near the main entrance, local and visitors dance the local style which is very lovely. Took us about 2 hours to walk and shop. Nice place with many stuff to buy like hats, clothes, jade, skin care cream, dishes, watches, dressing accessories, foods and snacks, etc. Remember to bargain hard and walk away as they will call you back to sell. Good for photo taking as they decorate the whole place beautifully. We didn't go up the Tower so can't comment. Can go back to near Beijing Road by bus #61 or #157. In Urumji they scan bags whenever we enter a mall or even hotel. They ask to check our bags when we wait for a bus too. Always bring your passport as they check and register if you go into a long distance bus station and a scenic area. People generally are friendly to foreigners.
