An experience, which only Kashgar offers, Miles from nowhere, mid-way between Rome and Beijing, and this exotic oasis used to be the last outfitting station on the centuries-old Silk Road. Trade remains in bygone style, at least on Sundays, when the entire community gathers at the world's liveliest market. Known as "the pearl on the Ancient Silk Road", the Sunday Bazaar is dotted with stalls here and there. Throughout the bazaars, one finds shopkeepers that sell almost everything while others specialize in local produce, arts and crafts, garments, knives, timber, coal, and animals. Afternoon is free at leisure and evening we join for a typically Kashgari meal.
