SKU: 3376441573



Samarkand, Bukhara and Khiva: names that conjure in the mind images of Eastern exoticism, the colourful world of the ‘Arabian Nights’, of caravans crossing the great Red Desert bringing silks, spices, jewels and other precious goods from China to the bazaars of the Near East and the marketplaces of Europe. On this 12-day journey through Uzbekistan, you’ll follow the route of the famous Silk Road, exploring these fabulous cities, with their highly ornate mosques, madrasahs and palaces, as well as the modern capital, Tashkent. You’ll also see one of the world’s best collections of Soviet art in Nukus, the desert landscapes of remote Karakalpakstan, and the grand tombs of the Biblical prophet Daniel and the medieval warrior-emperor, Tamerlane. Join us in Uzbekistan and embark on the adventure of a lifetime!
