In China's new Xinjiang: patriotic tourism, riot police and propaganda
China is trying to move on from a security crackdown in Xinjiang in which more than a million ethnic Uyghurs were detained in re-education centres since 2016, according to U.N. experts and researchers - part of what Beijing has described as an effort to eradicate extremism.

It wants to build a patriotic, multi-ethnic region that is secular, Mandarin-speaking and attractive to domestic tourists who spend trillions of yuan a year on group tours and curated experiences.
