is it correct to call kashgar bazaar still Sunday bazaar in english ?
do local people understand what you mean ,where you want to go ?
you can say ,instead of calling it in english ,call it (yingi bazaar) ,that is much better for tourists .
and another thing , tourists don,t know where to stay while they are in kashgar city , good answer is ,Chinibag Mihmanhanisi (chinibag hotel) or Saman Mihmanhanisi (seman Hotel) ,there are bunch of hotels in kashgar but little expensive .
