Imagine yourself walking alongside Sir Jorah, Sir Barristan, the Dothrakis and the Unsullied while enjoying the Moroccan culture.
In Game of Thrones lore, the city of Yunkai, known also as the Yellow City (Valyrian: Qeldlie Oktion), is one of the three great Ghiscari city-states of Slaver’s Bay, located southwest of Meereen and north of Astapor. Bedslaves, trained in the “Way of the Seven Sighs”, are Yunkai’s chief export.
The glorious city of Yunkai is ruled by an oligarchy of slave merchants calling themselves the Wise Masters. Its people are known both as Yunkish and Yunkai’i.
Astapor, also known as the Red City, is the southernmost of the three great city-states of Slaver’s Bay. A noted stopping point for ships bound from Qarth to the Free Cities and Westeros, Astapor is home of the infamous Unsullied, eunuch slave-soldiers considered by many to be the finest infantry troops in the World.
The town’s symbol, like that of the other cities of Slaver’s Bay, is the harpy, the ancient symbol of the Ghiscari Empire, of which it was once part. Though culturally still identifying itself as Ghiscari, Astapor is an independent city-state and is not aligned with New Ghis, which seeks to restore the Ghiscari Empire, to the south.
