Book your 2020/2021 holiday to Central Asia with Wendy Wu Tours
Holidays to Central Asia are entwined with legends of the Silk Road, the ancient trading route along which goods, ideas, philosophies and religions moved between the east and the west.
This is a land where mountains and deserts dominate the landscapes, beautiful blue domes and towering minarets watch over ancient cities and legendary names litter a rich history – Alexander the Great, Genghis Khan and Tamerlane, to name just a few?
Enigmatic and mysterious, each country enjoys its own unique appeal.
Armenia boasts fabulous mountain views and some of the earliest Christian heritage in the world, whilst Kyrgyzstan’s magnificent peaks and valleys are home to a centuries old nomadic culture. In fact if mountains are your thing, be sure not to miss Tajikistan, over 90% of the country is mountainous!
Uzbekistan is world-renowned for its glorious historic Silk Route cities: Samarkand, Bukhara and Khiva, whilst Kazakhstan shows a far more modern face to the world. Georgia’s popularity is booming with visitors drawn by its hip café culture, mountain hikes and beautiful beaches, whilst curious Turkmenistan still feels decidedly off the beaten track.
