Kashgar

Kashgar is (was . . . ) an amazing city flourishing with unique Uighur culture. I was fortunate enough to go through the city twice, once in early Oct 2006 on my way to Tibet and again in Aug 2007. Sadly enough, the Chinese government has taken steps to 'preserve' this ancient city through demolition.

And some pictures from my time there:
