Teenagers from Northwest China's Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region have joined hands with their inland peers for a variety of interactive activities this summer.

A 5-day summer camp, which kicked off Monday, is a fine example of how opportunities are being provided for the younger generation of the country to make friends with kids who may live thousands of miles away.

The forty students from Xinjiang prepared their home-made gifts especially for their long awaited contemporaries in East China's Zhejiang Province.

It's the very first time for many of the Xinjiang teenagers to travel far from their hometown. Some say they were overexcited when the time came to board an airplane.

A student from Xinjiang said, "It's a fantastic experience! It's so cool! Although it made me a bit dizzy!"

Upon their arrival, this group of first-time travelers were warmly welcomed by their peers in Zhejiang.

The series of Xinjiang-Inland cultural exchange programs was initiated in March this year. So far, some 24-thousand students from the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region have made friends with their peers in inland towns through activities like this.
