Shopping in Kashgar

The price of everything is negotiable in Kashgar, adding to excitement of shopping. Be polite in bargaining, but be mindful that merchants will overcharge you as a foreigner especially if you do not speak Uyghur or Chinese; so bargain hard. Price differences between locals and foreigners can easily amount to several hundred yuan so be careful. Local specialities include various carpets made in locally or imported from surrounding countries, Yingisar Knives, colourful Uyghur hats for men and women (doppa, kalpak),wood works, ceramics, jewellery,local jades and musical instruments.It is also good to buy some dried local fruits to try during your trip in Xinjiang.
