Buerjin city is wide and clean, a popular stop before going to Kanas. Remember to visit the riverside during sunset, and have dinner at the Riverside Night Market 布爾津河堤夜市 for BBQ Fish and Lamb Skew.

Our bus reach BeiTun 北屯,at 4.30PM from Fuyun 富蕴, and immediately board the bus to Burqin 布爾津 (RMB 20) which take an hour.

We check into a slightly luxury 3-star hotel for a bargain price of RMB 140, since we want a reliable facility to store our luggage for a few days while we hike in Kanas.

The highlight of Burqin is Burqin Riverbank Night Market 布爾津河堤夜市 and sunset at the riverbank. There are plenty of BBQ shops near the riverbank, so we opt for stall No. 2 LaoHuZi 老胡子 based on recommendation by a local.

The meal is satisfying with a local Russian beer, lamb skew, fish skew and Naan bread form RMB 70 for two. I would say it's a good bargain and satisfying experience.

Near Burqin riverside is a bridge called Golden Burqin 金色布尔津, as it would turn golden when the sun shine on it during sunset. The river is beautiful and lively.

We shop around for next day's hiking supply before going back to the hotel.
