Breakfast. Pick up from hotel.
Shopping tour of Tashkent.
Chorsu bazaar (Eski Juva bazaar) The traditional ideal of an oriental bazaar as a place of abundant merchandise, bright colors and a lively bustle finds its embodiment in Uzbekistan. A perfect bazaar is crammed with produce, has a motley appearance and allows loud voices and exclamations; it is a place in which bargaining is intrinsic. There are 15 such large bazaars in Tashkent.
Here you will find again vegetables and fruit (under the new blue domes) as well as all the other well-known products. The Chorsu bazaar has a very but large open-air market for clothes, shoes, carpets, wood carved products, and handmade aluminum products. A very nice shopping are to wander around with guests, no matter what you are looking for.
Farkhatsky bazaar They only sell melons. The melons from the country are brought in by trucks. They dump their cargo on the streets. In September/October you see the whole street with only melons. The owners of the melon harvest stay day and night with their business. Even in winter they sleep outside in the street until they are sold out.
Hippodrome bazaar There are less fresh products and more (leather)clothes, shoes, carpets and whatever else you can imagine. It is difficult to park your car and the market is most of the time very crowded. Here you can find the real bargains. Even imported goods from India and Pakistan are sold here. If you like it, shopping here can take you a whole day.
There is also a huge and real car sale bazaar for new and second hand cars. In the recent past this was the only place where people could buy new cars. Open: everyday, except monday.
