Our trip was a perfect mixture of big cities and more remote places.

Kashgar

A bustling medieval city, Kashgar was once one of the most prosperous trading towns in Asia. Located in the far west of Xinjiang, China's westernmost province, Kashgar has long been multi-ethnic, with Chinese, Kyrgyz, Uighurs, Uzbeks and Tajiks residing side by side. Because of its long, varied trading history, food in Kashgar, as in the rest of China's west, is flavorful and unique, one of the first true fusion cuisines in the world. Today, the city is home to busy markets, and serves as a hub to Central and South Asia.

Two of Kashgar's most evocative sights are the fascinating Yekshenba Bazaar, filled with wares from across Central Asia, and Kashgar's old city, which once sat at a trade crossroads, and was among the most cosmopolitan enclaves in the world.
