Kashgar is an oasis city and the westernmost Chinese city, located near the border with Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan.

Historically a junction between two branches of the old Silk Road, Kashgar has been an important trading center for many centuries, and remains so today.

It’s markets, and especially its’ Sunday livestock market, attract people from hundreds of miles and are said to be among the largest in Asia.

The local population (approximately 350,000) is primarily Uyghurs, with an increasingly large Han Chinese population. Smaller groups of Kyrgyz, Tajiks and Uzbeks make for a colorful ethnic variety.

Overall Atmosphere: Combination
Combination Atmosphere destinations combine elements of both cultural and natural destinations, where this combination is itself essential to the travel experience. Common examples are Archaeological Sites (where culture is usually experienced outdoors), Scenic Local Markets (where indigenous cultures interact outdoors), Hotsprings and Vineyard Areas (where nature provides the raw materials but humans create the surroundings), and Unique Cultural Landscapes (where humans and nature interact in innovative ways, as in the elaborate rice terracing systems of Asia).

Combination Interests typically fall somewhere in the middle of the three types of primary interests in terms of
(a) how climate-dependent they are
(b) how accessible and physically demanding they are.
Featuring both cultural and natural attractions.
