Kashgar - how much is left to see of original culture

We're thinking of visiting Kashgar on a trip to China - just looking for places with interesting culture - is it still worth going to Kashgar?

Hi, steve17:

There are still much to see in Kashgar. The old town of Kashgar, Id Kah Mosque, the ancient street right next to this mosque is spectacular to witness so much culture that still remain the glory of the silk road culture. locals call ZhiRenJie, if you have watched movie called "Kite Runner" that much of it was actually cost in in here as well as in other part of Kashgar town. , Abak Hojia Mausoleum is a masterpiece of the Uighur people's architecture, glazed tiles, bricks in color of turquoise, dark blue, white, green coating the building is really nice to see.

Other than this, make sure you get there not to miss Sunday Market which is also called Yekshenba Bazaar, Animal market..... there are so much to see and make sure if you would have the chance to try the local food. It is terrific.

Hope this information would be helpful

Hi everybody, sorry for my mistake, I sopped to send the above post in another one and i can not edit as the time expired when I discovered

Kashgar is still a great place to visit. The old city of Kashgar has been changing, but not replaced with high Chinese buildings like other cites, but it has been rebuilding the houses. even the new old city is not as interesting as the old style, but the culture of Uighur people still quite rich. some parts are still as original style and I am sure you are not disappointed
