Uzbekistan – Jewel of the Silk Road
|Resort:||Uzbekistan - Jewel of the Silk Road|
Samarkand. Bukhara. Khiva. The names conjure up images of Arabian Nights, Eastern exoticism and caravans crossing the Red Desert to bring silks, spices and jewels to the bazaars of the Near East. Our journey through Uzbekistan follows the Silk Road route, exploring the mosques, palaces, museums and madrasahs of these crossroad cities. Our adventure also takes us through the dramatic desert scenery of remote Karakalpakstan and reveals the grand tombs of the Biblical prophet Daniel and medieval warrior-emperor Tamerlane.
