Bukhara Tourist Traps: 4 reviews and 2 photos
Many o fthe mosques and medreses in Bukhara are now turned into msueum-like complexes. The old galleries and rooms are now occupied by souvenir shops, sometimes in the disguise of a carpet museum. Also the old covered bazaars - trading domes - are souvenir bazaars today. Some people think it is a pity as it does not look like the original anymore. It is not authentic, they say.
Unique Suggestions: At least the mosques have not been destroyed and people earn their living with selling souvenir shops. And what could be more authentic than a bazaar where trade is still going on? Even ,w hen they do not sell jewellery anymore but souvenirs?!
