Uzbekistan - Jewel of the Silk Road
Our brand new Worldwide brochure is out now, setting a new standard of excellence and refining what is already our most comprehensive range of tour programmes! We've asked one of our product managers, Phil, to give us the lowdown on two of our brand new tours for 2016 featured in the brochure, starting today with our Uzbekistan – Jewel of the Silk Road itinerary…
"Uzbekistan emerged from Russian rule back in 1991 and since then has made massive strides to embrace tourism and parade its abundance of opulent monuments and buildings of impeccable architecture.
Positioned at the crossroads between Europe and Asia, and at the heart of the Silk Route, the majestic cities of Khiva, Bukhara and Samarkand evoke visions of a history draped in the wealth of a successful trade route.
Still little-visited, Uzbekistan is a photographer’s dream. Intricately tiled buildings sparkle in the glorious sunshine and the distinct appearance of its people can easily be captured. To set our tour apart, we have also included the 'northern capital' of Uzbekistan, Nukus. It's home to the Savitsky Art Museum, which has the second-largest collection of Soviet art in the world. Whilst in Nukus we also visit the ancient pilgrim site of Mizdakhan Necropolis, which is sacred to the Karakalpakstan people."
Why not join historical icons like Genghis Khan and Alexander the Great and discover the hidden treasure which is Uzbekistan for yourself?
Nicola considers herself very lucky to have had the opportunity to visit a number of places around the world and these experiences usually involve searching for as many kinds of wildlife as possible. Recent highlights include penguins in Antarctica, bears and whales in Canada and Alaska and sea otters in California - but there are always more animals to search for.
