Shopping in Uzbekistan is a wonderful experience since the country is located in the center of Eurasian continent and main routes of the Great Silk Roads uniting East and West passed through the territory of present-day Uzbekistan, which was one of the places, where the first civilizations emerged and developed.
So, it is hardly imaginable to visit Uzbekistan and not to visit the shops that are called “Bazaars” which offer really good bargain. People who come from other countries and visit Bazaars are amazed with the sweet, juicy, sun-enriched fruit. Local traders sell various fresh products including "dried fruit" - coragha, dried figs, melons, almonds, raisins, prunes sesame seeds in sugary syrup, peanuts, walnuts and others.
Siab Bazaar, for example, is an open-air market located in Samarkand, not far from Registan square near Bibi-Khanym Mosque and Shakhi-Zinda Necropolis. The entrance to the bazaar is a high arch decorated with blue and dark blue mosaic at the top. Samarkand Siab Bazaar is like Chorsu Bazaar in Tashkent.
Chorsu Bazaar is in The Old Town in Tashkent and today, although Chorsu Bazaar has, of course, been thoroughly renovated; a lot of new rows of roofed stalls and stores have been built, it still retains the fascinating aura of the old-time Orient..
Central Bazaar of ancient city Bukhara the biggest market of the city where a huge number of local people and tourist visit every day. In Central Bazaar you can witness friendly local people selling local products like handmade carpets with amazing patterns, tablecloths with colorful hand-embroidered, homespun blankets, embroidered with gold, silk exceptionally beautiful in color and texture, folk musical instruments, national toys, tableware, jewelry and ornaments.
North of the Allakuli Khan Medressa there is a Allakuli Khan Bazaar and Caravanserai. The entrance to both is through tall wooden gates beside the medressa. It is open- air market in Khiva and visited by great deal of people everyday. The bazaar is a domed market arcade, catering to both traders and tourists, which opens onto Khiva’s modern Dekon Bazaar at its eastern end.
The cities which are gems of Silk Road like Samarkand, Khiva, Termez, Urgench, Bukhara and Fergana have their own style of ceramics. Historical places and museums in Tashkent, Bukhara, Khiva and Samarkand have their own small shops where you can see or buy traditional clothes, hand-made articles, antique items, paintings and aquarelles. Also, there are a range of things you can buy as a present from Uzbekistan. No one leaves Uzbekistan empty-handed - it is a principle of oriental hospitality.
