I deleted the following from the article as it seems more relevant as Get in info for Bishkek or Almaty, and less so for those wanting to visit Urumqi and should not be its own subsection title: Zepppep 13:50, 20 February 2012 (EST)

Infos for Cyclists[edit]

How to get to Bishkek. Many Cyclist decide not to ride to Bishkek because of shortage of time. There are two options :

Flight with China Southern: About 300$, you have to book through an chinese agency, price for bicycle is about 40Yuan per kilogram. You'll get the kyrgyzvisa on arrival at the airport.

Sleeperbus to Almaty: Price 400/420Yuan per bed, bicycle 100Yuan. Takes 24-30h.

Why are the prices in Yen?[edit]

The prices throughout this have the Japanese Yen symbol, yet the country is China. Makes no sense. —The preceding comment was added by 219.142.208.198 (talkcontribs)

Wikitravel:Currency recommends ¥ symbol for Chinese currency, which incidentally is the same symbol used for Japanese yen. So, as this article is about a location in China, it's highly likely that the symbol refers to Chinese renminbi/yuan than anything else. – Vidimian 13:30, 26 July 2012 (EDT)
