The Ultimate Silk Road Experience

Uzbekistan is the heart and soul of the Silk Road. The Old Towns of its four UNESCO-listed cities – Khiva, Bukhara, Samarkand, and Shahrisabz – are mazes of exotic architecture and gorgeous decorative art, while in the countryside, the Fergana Valley is a fertile oasis dotted with ancient villages. MIR will introduce you to this remarkable country’s beauties, large and small, from palaces and mosques to hand-woven textiles and plov, the sumptuous national dish.
