Kashgar
Itinerary
It must be Sunday today. Sunday is bazaar day in Kashgar, site of perhaps the largest and longest running bazaar in Central Asia. As many as 100,000 people come in from surrounding areas to buy and sell animals and goods. Early in the morning you can see streams of people in donkey carts coming in to market.

There are separate areas for animals, furniture, fabric, clothing, shish kebobs, shaves with a straight razor (including scalp), fruits and vegetables, and much more. In the animal bazaar care needs to be exhibited as horses and donkeys are being test-driven. Also in the animal bazaar you can find cattle, sheep, goats, and camels - all in a fairly small, walled-in area.

When you are in the midst of all this, you may feel like you have stepped back in time several hundred years.

After breakfast you will be free to roam the bazaar or to go along with a guide who will translate Uighur for you. Stay in your Hotel.
