Welcome to Cherchen

The predominantly Uyghur town is fairly unremarkable, but pleasant enough, with a couple of interesting sights nearby that are worth stopping off for if you're passing through. As a foreigner you'll be an object of great curiosity here, including to the police, who may well stop and photograph you.
