« The Inner Mongol City of Hohhot/Guihuacheng in the Eyes of Western Travellers »,

Abstract : This paper explores several Western travellers' accounts of their travels to Hohhot (Kökeqota), capital city of the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, which in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries was a cosmopolitan trading town and a religious centre. It argues that although Western travellers generally stayed in Hohhot to prepare their expeditions in Mongolia or Xinjiang and were rarely interested in the city itself, they nevertheless described the city's urban layout, markets and temples, and provided information on its population, government, cemeteries etc.
