  • About him there is another branch reviews called Siab Bazaar. Bazaar is located next to the mosque Bibi-khanym mosque. Called Siabskim, the title seems to be near the river. Very extensive, mostly salespeople grouped by commodity. But all traders the same set of goods, one gets the impression that they have a general wholesale suppliers. And bargain was uninteresting: traders yielded almost nothing, which also suggests that they sell stranger goods with a small margin. But still we bought any sweets from nuts to Halva. Bought the famous Samarkand and Scone. Perhaps it is only here in the Bazaar was already quite tasteless, not soft. Later we tasted this Scone piping-hot, in the bakery, she was quite hot, even at first was difficult to eat. Here's TU Scone there was nice. Strawberries in late April was only one saleswomen, i.e. without any choice, although satellites for a couple of days before this came from Tashkent, said that Strawberry was sold in large quantities along the road. Well, that girl could buy and plastic basket to the berries less rumpled. The taste was not very.

  • Chaotic open-air market filled with locals buying groceries. Great people watching.
  • You can find almost everything here spices, breads, Juices, fruits, meat, dry fruits , lady vendors in traditional uzbek dresses are delight to watch. Must visit while in Samarkand to experience Uzbek culture.
  • Central Asian bread is for sale in the Siob Bazaar at Samarkand, Uzbekistan.
  • Market, so selling lots of products, such as fresh food and condiments. As tourists can buy squeezed dry fruits such as apricots and Samarkand famous is about 1.3 km of NaN, and fresh fruit juice. From the Registan square next to the bus? I would have come up with, local people were aboard.
