Xinjiang is a beautiful place and the people there live a better life now. Due to terrorists attack in the 1990 to 2012, there were many explosions or bombing in that region, especially in the southern part of the region. But since President Xi took office, the central government consolidated investment and support in the area, infrastructures have greatly improved and the social security was greatly improved too. People feel safe and business has been booming. Education, culture and tourism have all been strengthened and local people said happily that Xinjiang is the safest place in China as well as in the world.
