Uzumqin is a small town in northern Inner Mongolia, China.
It is a typical small Inner Mongolian town with mostly new buildings, some of them quite soviet in style. It is very close to the south eastern borders of the country Mongolia and does not see a lot of tourists. It's likely that some of the locals will get interested and come up to talk to you and wish you welcome.
There are buses from Xilinhot and Beijing.
By foot, since it's so small, or by taxi if you want to travel a longer distance.
The beautiful countryside and the Mongolian culture.
There are shopping opportunities along the main road, where you will find things such as saddles, high quality wool-clothes, traditional Mongolian dresses, traditional jewelry. The products are of course made in China, but not in the usual sense of the word: rather than cheap factory goods of dubious quality, they tend to be very well made - they're made to be used.
It's easy to find small restaurants. Mostly Mongolian and Chinese dishes. Mongolian food puts a lot of emphasis on meat and diary-products. All of course from the own farm! Tourists whit specific needs or preferences do best to bring their own food.
Mongolian tea and Baiju (strong alkoholic beverage) are two local drinks.
There are some small hotels, as everywhere in China.
Central buss station.
