Kashgar Sunday Market

Kashgar, China

Since centuries, the Kashgar Sunday Market in China has been a meeting place for the locals, merchants, and other travelers along the famous Silk Route. In ancient times, the main purpose of the market was to trade in horses, camels, and other goods. But the visitors would also enjoy the exotic music and aromatic local food. The ethnic Uigur groups are very friendly, which made it easy for travelers and traders to stop by. Today, the venue for selling horses and camels has changed. So the market now sells silk cloth and garments, household items from simple pots and pans to exotic crockery, local musical instruments, knives, dried fruits, and ethnic souvenirs.
