Turpan is famous for its fruits, especially grapes, and the best place to enjoy the grapes is the Grape Valley. Located in the western part of Flaming Mountain, the Grape Valley is a zone of vineyards of 8 kilometers long and 0.5 kilometers wide. The grapes here are crystal and watery: some as green as emeralds; some as red as agates, some as small as pearls, while others look like olives. The best season to visit the valley is summer, when it is cool and ideal to escape from the heat.
