Chorsu Bazaar

No visit to Uzbekistan would be complete without a visit to the Chorsu Bazaar. In fact, travellers to the central Asian nation are urged to pack as lightly as possible - since they will almost certainly be returning home with twice as many clothes as they arrived with! Silk dresses, Italian leather jackets, hand-stitched cotton shirts - you name it, the Chorsu Bazaar has it, and at outrageously low prices, to boot. Souvenir-hunters should look out for decorative ceramics (an Uzbek speciality), while the array of fresh fruit, vegetables and spices is guaranteed to make your mouth water. The Chorsu Bazaar is, as yet, unspoiled by mass tourism - it is an 'authentic' market, full of Uzbeks doing their daily shopping, and visiting it is as much a rich and rewarding cultural experience, as it is a shopping expedition par excellence.
