At the main road, the green-white cars are taxi

The Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region in the far west of China. This region is so different from other parts in China and has borders to eight countries.
Kashgar is an oasis city on the Silk Road with an unique charcter. They have close connections (religion, trade, appearance) to the people in Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan.

For more information see my older posts with the label China.
