Uzbek & Turkmen: Cities of the Silk Road
14 days from £2650 excl. flights*
This outstanding trip takes in four of the most important cities of the old Silk Road, and is perfect if culture and history are your reasons for travel. Starting your trip in Uzbekistan you will first visit the splendour of Samarkand, Bukhara and Shakhrisabz - the birth place of Timur - before crossing the famous River Oxus and entering Turkmenistan where you will travel on to Merv, one of the great emporiums of the Silk Road (until a certain Genghis Khan flattened most of it). After this you will travel to the curiously named and totally weird, modern capital of Ashgabat (the City of Love), then visit Konya Urgench before travelling on to Khiva. The tour ends where it started in among the leafy streets of Tashkent. This is an interesting and entirely original itinerary you will find nowhere else.
