More a market for the locals than a bazaar full of exotic things worth buying. Still worth a stroll through for the atmosphere and goods on show but not likely to lead purchases. The best shopping areas in Kashgar are in the renovated old town...More

Lots of stuff definitely geared towards locals. Worth a walk through it but did not offer much of anything that grabbed my attention.

The Kashgar Bazaar is so many things. A few words I'd use to explain it are: huge, busy, crowded, crazy, amazing, chaotic, hot, sweaty, interesting, loud, diverse, colourful, vibrant.... This is by far the most congested bazaar I've ever been to. There is an amazing...More

Fashioned from the old city of Kashgar, this large enclave of authentic housing is still the heart of Uigher culture in Xinjiang. Lots of new 'old buildings' and refurbishments with modern Chinese tourism in mind, this is still a fascinating Bazaar full of mazes of...More

Wanna literally squeeze with local people? Need souvenirs with a bargain? Looking for something special? Feeling daring to eat with the locals shoulder to shoulder? This would be your place on any given Sunday. The busiest Sunday market place ever.

Went to Bazar but it was kind of disappointing. Couldnt find things of interest. The bazar basically serves locals only. There are v few shops for souveniers

You can find things from rarely found bronze nails to mobile phones, clothing of any (oriental) taste, carpets, home decor, shoes, even antics, souvenirs, old 78 records, old & modern cameras, etc. But best are the dried fruits, special the very small figs (delicious) &...More

Diverse culture, you can find tea house, salon, cafe, bread shop, hawkers, butcher shops in this bazaar. I didn't go inside the market very deep, good to see what are the people, their culture, their dress and behaviour.
