Silk Road Tour Spotlight: Journey Through Central Asia (video)

One of MIR’s best-loved and well known tours, Journey Through Central Asia: The Five ‘Stans, explores a part of the world many know only from fairy tales or history lessons about the Old Silk Road. Dubbed “the five ‘Stans” – Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan – these Central Asian countries linked the great trade routes between Europe and China more than 2,000 years ago. Result: an exotic mix of foreign cultures, customs, architecture and religions.
