Bucket List Destination: Xinjiang, China

{Rolling hills}

For years I’ve had a growing list of Bucket list destinations that I hope to visit at least once in my life. I thought I’d bring this list to life by posting some of them on here, for you all to see as well. One of the more recent additions to this list is Xinjiang, China. The place is absolutely breathtaking, and often a famous spot for photographers to visit (for obvious reasons).

The landscape and villages of Xinjiang are almost so picture perfect, it’s hard to believe it exists. Here’s a few of my favourite shots and areas.
