Lying on the crossroads of the ancient ‘Silk Road’, Uzbekistan remains a mystery to the masses. However, its obscurity makes it all the more appealing to the seasoned travellers from Australia.
Uzbekistan’s cities are awash with turquoise domed mosques and minarets whilst its museums display the history of the region from the days of Genghis Khan and Alexander the Great and to its more recent history with the former Soviet Union.
Australian based travel specialist Byroads Travel has a 13-day Transoxiana tour covering the highlights, including visits to the cities of Tashkent, Bukhara, Samarkand and Khiva.
The tours depart Tashkent on the October 8, 2017 and Oct 7, 2018 and are priced from $US2895 (about $A3987) per person, twin share. Air fares from Australia are additional.
