You really can buy anything you want at the famous Tolkuchka Bazaar in the suburbs of Ashgabat, Turkmenistan. The sprawling shopping complex takes up acres and is arguably the most famous market in Central Asia.
I saw these decorative shoes at the bazaar and asked about them. Amazingly, they are wedding shoes. I love the juxtaposition of the shoes with the items sold to ward off the evil eye!
It is worth your time to visit the colorful Tolkuchka Bazaar if you are planning a visit to Ashgabat. This wonderful shopping experience is located near the city airport and is an inexpensive taxi ride from anywhere in Ashgabat.
