A great place to explore. Lots of interesting booths with some things that will be immediately familiar to Western travelers, and many things that will seem strange. It is also a great place to change money and strike up a conversation. We even watched a...More

Must visit place, crowded, dirty, loud and charming at once. You may buy cheap souvenirs, textile etc.

This market is clean and well sorted for meat, spices, nuts, vegetables, fruits etc, but there is nothing really special about it. Prices are the same as in all other markets

Okay so if it's your first market in Uzebkistan you will enjoy it but if you did it in Samarkand avoid this. It's the same. Spices, toys, carpets, handicrafts, bread, meat. It's amazing for the first timer and for people used to controlled markets abroad....More

You can find here everything for every taste. There is a section for every food, every spice, every type of clothing, etc. There are many prepared food stalls, where you can have your shishlik, kebab or laghman meat-and noodle soup.
