"Peshawar is the capital of the..." Peshawar Favorite Tip by filipdebont

Peshawar Favorites: 15 reviews and 13 photos


Favorite thing: Peshawar is the capital of the North Western Frontier Province (NWFP), Peshawar is a very exotic city, and it has preserved the traditional atmosphere and retained its air of Arabian Nights.
The most exciting part of Peshawar is the old city,
Visiting the bazaar, which is as big as a whole quarter, is a true experience. I'm not sure , but there must be hundreds of small shops. It is
like a labyrinth of small streets and colourful bazaars, a mosaic of merchants, travellers, Phanthans and Afghans. The shops who offer the same
stuff can - in a typical Asian style - all be found together. (this picture is made at Chowk Yadgar, the central square in the old city, as you can see, a very busy place)
