The Grand Bazaar in Urumqi – Cycling The Silk Road In China

I love old markets.
They are the remaining link to the way selling and buying used to be, along the Ancient Silk Road.

The Grand Bazaar in Urumqi is a good place to see what fascinate the people.
It is mainly beauty products including an array of henna for the hair, food, craft, nuts and dried fruit, decorated knifes, fur products, silk scarves, silk rugs, jewelry, live scorpions and healing potions….

The busy food streets, are filled with food that we do not dare to taste… (nor care to….)
So we bought some freshly baked flat bread and munched as we strolled and soaked the atmosphere.
