Shopping spots that were and are. Everything there is a souvenir shop. Pretty nice variety of all sorts of different gifts. Definitely check this place out when you are thinking 'what to buy my friends'. Bargain and you will be victorious!

The shops in and around the trading domes have a great selection of carpets, silk scarves and other beautiful handicrafts. This is a great place for gift shopping. The setting is traditional - an interesting place to meander around.

The warehouses on the inside have been changed into souvenir shops but worth looking inside to see how they are divided up and kept cool. The Silk Road traders used these areas for centuries. They are now still full of traders but selling to tourists...More

I really enjoyed shopping in the old trading domes. You can buy anything from silk or wool handmade carpet to the traditional embroidery “suzani” and fabulous scissors. The vendors are very friendly and do not pressure you to purchase.

The trading domes are Caravan Serai like building, full of middle eastern flavor, or ancient silk road flavor. A good photo opportunity. Inside, just full of souvenir shops.

I loved walking in the domes and checking out the shops. Besides the usual tourist trinkets. This is a good place to buy carpets as well as miniature paintings that are famous here

The trading domes are the most unique and worthwhile part of Bhukara, even though it’s all tourist shops. Even so, most of the stuff they sell are made locally. We found a shop right at the entrance of one trading dome where they guy was...More

Everything you could want as a souvenir is here. The prices are negotiable and reasonable. The quality of the products is high, on the whole.
