welcome to China welcome to Xinjiang I've not once as a female felt unsafe good evening and welcome to Urumqi capital of Xinjiang you guys we are here in the capital city of Xinjiang look at this we've got a bustling Market here on the side we thought we'd come out in the evening see what Urumqi has to offer because we haven't seen the Night Life here so far in the previous Vlog if you guys have checked that one out were around Urumqi, Grand Bazaar, other places around in the city to see what the place has to offer right now let's see what's happening at night we are out and about now what time is it I hear you ask it is 8 p.m. if you can see that yes my watch is correct and it is still light outside look at the amount of daylight we still have and the reason for that is the days here are long the sun normally goes down about 8:30pm and it's still light until 9pm so hopefully in an hour it's going to be Nightfall and then we can see the lights go on as well and see what's happening in Urumqi the main city in Xinjiang there's too many clothes local Regional and just the normal everyday ones as well look at these ones here they look quite cheap as well like the price look at that that is colourful and only 25 yuan that's not bad you guys does I saw some trainers back there for 49 yuan which I just saw the number I don't know if that's correct but if that's true that's insane yes there are probably a lot more people out at this specific time having meals doing their shopping as you can see I don't know what this is it looks nice some sort of bread or biscuits I think looks really good hello what is this? biscuits? oh two oh what is this one okay let's see I don't know what that is I want to try it I'm a bit hungry yes thank you what is it have you sorted it out yes that was only one Yuan what one? yes I tried giving her five and she said no we're from England thank you she was going to give us a whole pack and I was said I just need a few yeah we want a snack right now she said it's just one yuan I gave five yuan she said no just one love the honesty of people yeah it's like a donut oh it's really good so like we were saying guys people are out and about people are making some purchases they're buying some shoes we've got shoes here I see a sign for 30 yuan there wow are you enjoying that?

30 Yuan maybe we'll translate quickly I like something like this for those that don't know what henna is it's like a temporary tattoo so you can choose the designs that's the feet that's the hands are you going to go for something basic yeah there we go it depends on the size of the picture and the price is different okay so you choose which one you want yes and then she'd let you know how much it is we never thought we'd find anyone down here in Urumqi doing henna in China so do you like this it's kind of simple it's not too much that's pretty cool yeah yeah right 50 okay 50 Yuan for this one yes okay I will go to eat and then I will come back okay when you put henna on you need to leave it on for like 20 to 30 minutes so if you're going to eat and you're going to leave henna on it's not going to work so dinner first and henna after thats cool I am in agreement so I think we're going to wander through here kind of quick because we are hungry as well it's looking pretty cool right the love tunnel it's all about love baby oh look at that you want to take a photo?

I think we're going to do right hand yeah yes all right okay we're going to go and sit here so time to get my henna go for it I'm just going to stand here we are warm back here there's a heater is there yes oh happy days for you then it's under the table did you even think that you would be getting henna in China no no way surprise I had honestly no idea this lovely lady here she's wasting no time that is some quick design in the making wow what is that I have not seen that before so is that like a heater yes no way so it's like a blow dryer like a hair dryer right so it can dry it a little bit so that I don't have to go around with it really wet and we're done yeah finished wow that looks so cool look at your fingers I really like it it's really nice every finger has a different design as well oh I love that the food is very good we will get fat if we eat too much the mutton here is very cheap so it's basically made with mutton and it's easy to gain weight yes that is so cool these two are having a conversation through the translator ah very good I like it thank you you know technology is an amazing thing when it works they don't speak the language but they still had a full-on conversation with the translator the translation is very good love it are we going to stick a tape on this yes so now she's going to take the design off or the excess ink off by using tape so I guess it's because it's quite cold right and she thinks that if she leaves it on maybe I will smudge it sorry yeah maybe I will damage it I have not seen this way of removing henna before neither have I but I like it you're taping it and then you're just removing the tape so yeah the excess just comes off yeah is so cool I've not seen it like this before because normally you just wash it off don't you yeah and normally I have the brown or the black welcome to China welcome to Xinjiang thank you my name is Muhammad nice to meet you Muhammad how old are you are all 11 very nice good to meet

wants to see it's beautiful we're almost finished though we're just taking the last little bits off I love it it look at that wow and it's red I love the color yeah it's really nice I actually really like it in red you know that is so cool I love it okay time to pay and then time to see the rest let's do this it would not be a Sun Kissed Bucket List Vlog if there was no mixue so go inside let's go though these like duvet bits I love them come in it's warm in here but look at this we've got the menu up there I don't know why we always look at the menu though we know exactly what we want we've been here too many times we know exactly what we're after yes the temperature's dropping slightly as it's getting late I think the morning and the night time is a little cold here but the rest of the day in the middle of the day it's actually okay it's not too bad are they cold oh my days mine are colder than yours what's wrong with you this is warm because I just had the henna done so this one was in front of hairdryer yeah but this one mine are even colder than yours and you were stood outside all the time shocking absolutely shocking this one thank you we know that much no we have no bubble tea I think all we have now is just ice cream and some lemon drinks because I think they've cleared everything up because it's too late we've almost missed mixue imagine I can't believe we went so long mispronouncing it you know now it's like the biggest life lesson it's Mixue not Mixue we thought mixue none of those when it's spelled in English it's all spelled together there's no spaces so yeah oh that was so quick I love these machines as well they just put them in and it does the lid to the lemon drink back into the cold let's just see what's happening it's gone really quiet it has you know but even though it's gone a bit quiet there's still an increased police presence of course there will be as we go into the night obviously however not once you guys have I felt unsafe you know there is many many people around and again because of the police presence it personally makes me feel safer I have had no issue we've wandered around so many streets tonight and some main streets some back streets and we've had no issues whatsoever I've not once as female felt unsafe so there you go see it's almost 11:00 p.m. y we don't feel unsafe nope also even though there might be heightened police presence too many about not once has anyone told us to take the camera off at all and no problems you know we've filmed everything the police have all been really friendly they've all smiled we've had some of them on camera as well and there's been no issues so that's our biggest lesson for today you guys if you take anything away from our Vlogs take away that you should not believe everything you read or see in the media I hope that we can be a little bit of proof for you but we're going to head out through the exit right is it that side though maybe this side have you seen these camels yeah they're so cool I love love camels that's Taz's new friend there we go and these copper pots as well this is where we were in the daytime in our previous Vlog you guys if you have not already seen that then go check it out and if you haven't already followed us on Instagram go ahead over there you'll find loads of little unseen bits loads of bits that don't make it into the Vlog go follow us @sunkissedbucketlist send us a DM that is not open either okay maybe another side then they're like guys why are you leaving Grand Bazaar oh that's so cute little photos there there's some Instagram shots wow she's got a good insta friend there so people seem to be clearing out but there's a fair bit of traffic still for this time at night it is about 11:00 p.m. we still got public buses running

we've still got cars coming in going out I'm kind of surprised at this you know still pretty Lively still cars going about but up here it looks busy again this is crazy busy oh what's going on here someone's selling something some Tech or some gadgets look at that I like that these are charging cables I love this very very nice look at that watch out behind you this way the other side there we go the guy's gone he's like hello you clueless Foreigner you have no idea where I am do you but they come on the path you guys and they don't make any noise electric bikes baby girl eyes in the back of my head is what I need oh what is this building here this looks pretty cool okay so just to give you guys an idea our hotel is still almost like 2 km away from where we are right now and we're going to walk all the way back all right there are bits that aren't too busy on the way there so let's see let's put it to the test let's show you guys that Urumqi is safe China overall has been really really safe because everywhere we've been during the night not once have we felt unsafe anywhere Urumqi is going to be one of these places as well so far no problems anywhere whatsoever we still have aunties out on the street selling some popcorn and breads hello I love it see the people are so friendly every time we look at someone they're like hello come over but yeah people are still out selling little Street side bits there was some fruit sellers still around so it is definitely if you like to come out in the evening you're not going to be disappointed here in Urumqi even the Jewelers are open at 11pm what that's so funny I love it what's going on crazy all right do you want some last minute late night shopping then wow yeah the Jewelers are open that's so funny imagine feeling the need to buy your jewelry at 11:00 p.m. at night when they've been open all day they had customers in there yeah so clearly there's a demand we'll go that way because that's where the hotel is somewhere in that direction see what's happening those girls were so cute as well they looked at us and was like wow okay why not there's not many places around where you would still see so much life at this time of night actually I'd say the majority of shops are still open most of them still open the delivery driver he's blaring some songs as well why not that was the best thing I loved that he's having the time of his life he's like do you know what work smart not hard I'm going to blare those songs he's loving life would you like to buy some last minute late night rugs I don't quite think I need them but that's something new it's a picture but it's like the rug material look this is so cool so this is all woven these are your central asian style carpet they're beautiful designs my mom has one of these rugs back at home and now I know where she gets it from clearly she got style yeah she got it from here wow beautiful got a mosque to the right there and a mosque here as well they're all lit up at night beautiful I love the way the the towers illuminate at night so gorgeous speaking of Mosques what did you hear about the number of mosques here in China I heard you guys something like China has more mosques than America and the UK put together yeah I don't know how true that is I haven't researched it thoroughly but that's what we read and if that fact is true oh my gosh wow that's a big fact we've heard it numbers somewhere like in the high thousands so if that is true wow you wouldn't expect that based on what the media tries to tell you about China and
