Kashgar (also spelled Cascar or Kashi in Chinese) is an oasis city in the western part of China's Xinjiang province. It has around 200000 inhabitants and is home to a substantial Uighur Muslim community. Kashgar retains a small old town, but nowadays the modern part of Kashgar is by far bigger. It has a big Sunday market, which unfortunately is not as spectacular as it probably way years ago. Nowadays Kashgar is a major tourist centre.
