Central Asia Journey

A truly inspirational journey across Central Asia. We weave our way through the cultural highlights, including the famous museums of Tashkent, the Registan of Samarkand, the sprawling archaeological site of Merv, the magnificent Summer Palace of Bukhara and the ancient city of Khiva, with an opportunity to appreciate the contrasting desert and mountain landscapes that characterise this fascinating region. While appreciating the entwined history and rich legacies of the Silk Road there are also opportunities to have a night at the opera or ballet, or witness a Turkmen horse race, or visit the colourful markets and handicraft centres where the locals skillfully produce their wares.
