CENTRAL ASIA - THE SILK ROAD

Central Asia is one of the beaten track travel destinations today. However, it was a bustling region in the old days. Better known as the Silk Road, the route through Central Asia connected many of the region's big cities such as Bukhara, Samarkand, Khujand, and Osh. The merchants stopped in these cities on their way between Europe and China and traded valuable goods, along with their knowledge and traditions with the local people. This made Central Asia a vibrant region with world-known scholars, master-craftsmen, and a diverse population. The Silk Road passed through remote and vivid landscapes of Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan's vast deserts, Tajikistan's towering the Pamir Mountains, and Kyrgyzstan's magic lakes.

Traveling in Central Asia, you will follow in the footsteps of the Silk Road traders and explore the most famous sights of Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan, and Tajikistan.

I wish to thank you for all your help in planning our trip from St. Petersburg to Moscow. All went very well. The train ride was uneventful. We did need some assistance from the concierge at our hotel in St. Petersburg in deciphering the signs in the railroad station. We had her write our the words "departure" and "arrival" in Russian, so we would know what track our train would be leaving.
