Itinerary
Day 1: Shanghai - Kashgar Arrrival

Fly from Shanghai to Kashgar via Urumqi. On arrival at Kashgar Airport, meet our local English-speaking tour guide and transfer to your hotel. Surrounded by the Great Pamir Mountains, Kashgar is the largest city in Central Asia, mid-way between Rome and Beijing, this exotic oasis used to be the last outfitting station on the centuries-old Silk Road. As what it was 2,000 years ago, today this city is still a major cultural and commercial crossroads in the area.

Day 2: Kashgar

In the morning, we will head to the Kashgar’s brilliant Sunday market, where the entire community gathers at the world's liveliest market. It attracts 50,000 people to view thousands of donkeys, camels and sheep, as well as a huge range of merchandise. This will be a memorable experience (or visit the other daily commodities market 2 km from this town). Also, enjoy a short walking tour through the Old Town with a visit to a Uyghur family. In the afternoon, explore Kashgar by visiting the Abakh Khoja Tomb, the Id Kah Mosque, Yusuf Has Hajip Mazar and the handicraft street.
