Tourism flourishes in China’s distressed Xinjiang

Friday, September 8, 2023


Kashgar, an olden Silk Road retreat, was of late on the frontlines of Beijing’s far-reaching anti-extremism
promotion in the north-western area.

The city’s peripheries are still marked with amenities that the reigning Communist Party once named
professional schools but Western investigators label as extra-legal confinement sites for Muslims, with the
United States connecting them to rules of ‘genocide.’

Currently, after years of attack on Uyghur ethnicities and means of life, the government is driving currency
into repackaging a state-accepted form of their tradition to draw local and overseas travelers.

On a current stopover by AFP journalists to old Kashgar, thousands of travelers packed street side
shops that were hawking silk scarves and hot naan. Other tourists captured selfies facing the pastel-yellow
Id Kah Mosque.

A Uyghur tour attendant said that the old town is the core of Kashgar, with a rich antiquity, culture and
exclusive construction, taking tourists, mostly from China’s Han mainstream cultural group, through the
constricted roads.

Dozens of goods provided to an inclination for travel photos captured by an expert shutterbug, where
tourists can pay more than 1,500 Yuan to put on glittery veils and pose around the city in Uyghur
