Lahore is closer. But it's not in a -stan either. Admittedly, I had never heard of this place but I liked the picture.

Here's a pic from the more developed part of town (hint, hint)

Kashgar, The westernmost city in China. The statue in the back of the 2nd picture is the largest Mao in China. Hmph. I actually kind of expected one of the world travelers on here to know this one, but I guess this thread doesn't get enough traffic.

Here's an easier one to make up for it.

Well that's St. Pete...just read up on Kashgar and it sounds like a fascinating place. I had no idea there was a city in China so heavily influenced by Islam. That's kind of a forgotten corner of the planet, it seems.

Anyway, I'll take a swing at this here:

Amazing what is happening in this city...the answer might surprise some:

Tropical... Looks like a colonial port city
Can't think of too many places where that kind of development would be surprising.
