If you are in Kashgar on a Sunday, make sure you hit up this market. The taxi costs around 40rmb one way, and total journey is about 20 min. It’s a bit out of the way for a reason - you need the large land...More

Kashgar is transforming very quickly into the modern age and this is one of the only truly traditional, authentic experience remaining in this fascinating region. It should not be missed! You will see a thousand year old tradition carrying on like it once was -...More

The market is open every Sunday. In addition to the locals coming here to sell/buy their live stock, the place is packed with tourists. I would have given the place a 5-star rating for an authentic experience if the locals didn't treat their animals with...More

We arrived early to watch farmers entering the market using an array of transport for their animals - sheep, goats, cows, yaks, donkeys, horses and even a couple of very grumpy camels. The auctions began around midday when small groups of farmers gathered around the...More

I had heard about this market and was not disappointed. OH&S and food safety have not caught up with this place - so they are doing it as they have always done it for centuries. There were faces from all across the Stans there. There...More
