The Grand International Bazaar is the biggest and thus the most famous in Urumqi. Every night, there are over 10,000 people going the market.  It offers locals a place to enjoy the flavour of a festival, to have a rest and to meet with friends. People barter goods, exchange information, and even gossip at the bazaar market.

In the old days, when the days of bazaars come, residents rush into the bazaar, some driving their animal carts, some riding bicycles, motorcycles, or on foot.

They barter their farm products and daily used items in the bazaar. But these simple bartered goods do not need whole households to spend a whole day. However, people like to go to bazaar, for it's like a small festival every several days.

In bazaars, one can have roasted meat, cool noodles, sweet yoghurt or home-made ice cream, smoke Mohe cigarettes, gossip, joke with old acquaintances; all these factors constitute a picture of the ethnic group.

From a mere economic prospective, the bazaar is also the primitive economical communication pattern. However, bazaar with its essence—mutual exchanges of needs, has always been a model during the development of Xinjiang's modern foreign trade.

Today the bazaar here is also a morden one, with special national style, never fail to attract millions of businessmen and travelers every day. It's like a library and an episode, wonderfully expressing the advantage and potential of Xinjiang's international trade.
