In recent years, the Central Asian country of Uzbekistan has been growing in popularity as a fascinating alternative travel destination. Once at the heart of the ancient Silk Road trade route, Uzbekistan was a frontier where cultures, religions, and ideas converged and flowed. Many are drawn in by its array of royal palaces, busy street bazaars, historic tombs, and widely-revered mosques that can be found dotted throughout the country’s ancient Islamic cities. This 10-day journey through classic Uzbekistan covers it all. After getting a taster of the capital, Tashkent, it’s on to explore the intricately decorated city of Khiva, awash with blue domes and tile art. The epic mountain journey that awaits will take you on to the equally impressive cities of Bukhara and Samarkand - two spectacular jewels in Uzbekistan’s crown.
