The Sunday Animal market is another exaggeration.First the name is incorrect. There were several animal markets near Kashgar, when you asked the local people most likely they do not understand which one do you mean. Even the taxi driver had problem of figuring out which one is the 'Sunday Animal market' although I had the name written in Chinese and Uihgur. The instruction given in the guidebooks and forum message for taking public bus to go there is also incorrect. They all said people should take bus#16 which does not even go to the same direction.
The official name for the Sunday animal market in Chinese is “活畜交易市场” in English it means Live animal trading market. It is also commonly known as “Dong Bazaar” 东巴札. It means East bazaar. The location of the market is actually north of Kashgar.
Bus # 23 is the one which will take you there, The sign on the bus is "23东巴札"
The bus terminal is in a small north-south oriented road, off the east side of Binhe Rd. which is parallel a small river/canal in the area of the International Grand Bazaar.
The bus stop is diagonally opposite the Kashgar #7 Elementary School.
The entrance to the lane is about 75m north of the corner of Aizirete Rd and Binhe Rd.
The trip to the livestock market is about 30 minutes, it costs 1 yuan. Most of the Uihgur people will get off at the highway junction, just follow the people to the entrance of the market which is approximately 200 meters on the left hand side from the junction.
