Going to the market is one of my great hobbies during my travels. As the most famous market in urumqi, grand bazaar is popular with tourists. With a strong islamic architectural style, the bustle and rich culture of the grand bazaar recreates the prosperity of the ancient silk road, where you can see many xinjiang flavors, xinjiang handicrafts, xinjiang Musical Instruments and many other specialties.
Unlike all the bazaars I had ever seen, the bazaar was not only the largest in the world, but it was not even an open-air structure or a strip of shops. In the food court, is a collection of 56 ethnic classic food, can think of xinjiang mutton kebabs, can not help but drools.
Wandering along the pedestrian street of the grand bazaar, small shops on both sides sell a variety of souvenirs. These souvenirs are not available in every tourist and commercial street in China. They have unique local culture and represent every rich product of xinjiang, such as carpets made of wool, scarves, hats and so on. Including Musical Instruments, handicrafts, ethnic costumes, cloth art and so on.
Xinjiang’s tute dried fruit is very famous, is also the largest bazaar concentration, the most common one of the characteristics of hand gift. I once bought xinjiang jujube and walnut (with red jujube inside), the taste is really good. After tasting, many tourists cannot help buying some to take home, or as a travel on the road to appease their hunger. But my personal favorite is walnuts with dates.
Artisan art is full of history and culture after death, and xinjiang is no exception. A lot of old handicraft, recombine modern aesthetic feeling and craft to become especially fashionable, exquisite. This is in my street saw pottery, lovely shape, colorful, if not the journey has just started, I really want to buy a stuffed suitcase. But in the end, I couldn’t help but buy a very small refrigerator paste shaped like xinjiang naan. You can imagine its cute appearance.

Besides the cashmere carpet, xinjiang wool scarf is also one of its features. The content is rich, the pattern is also many, each one is so beautiful, looking dazzling, do not know which one should choose.

Many people know that xinjiang mutton kebabs are delicious and whole roasted sheep is delicious, but there are also horse oil, sheep oil and other special products in xinjiang, do you know? I first learned about horse oil during a trip to Japan and South Korea, but I always thought it was made in Japan and South Korea. I never thought xinjiang horse oil was also very famous (poorly informed and ashamed). According to the friends who have used it, the horse oil here is very good, and also very cheap, ready to buy a resistance to the fall dry.
