The Kazanqi Folk Tourism District is located in the Ili river valley, Ili Kazakh Prefecture of the Xinjiang Autonomous Region; the area features folk culture of local ethnic groups. Businessmen from six ethnic groups live together in the old district, including members of the Uyghur, Han, Hui, Uzbek and Kazakh ethnicities. Among them, the Uyghur make up over 70 percent of residents.

Businessmen told CRI that they are now struggling with the declining number of tourists, due to the downward pressure on the Chinese economy.

However, most businessmen in Kazanqi are still optimistic, thanks to China's "Belt and Road" initiatives. They hope the economic campaign could help their goods go global through improved air and railway transportation.
