Summary

The Silk Road has long captured our imaginations and this tour offers the best of two Khanate states whose vast wealth was ploughed into splendid architecture. We will explore shimmering monuments in Khiva and Bukhara, as well as deserted, once splendid sites, such as those in Merv and Kunya-Urgench.

Tour highlights:

  • Explore the legendary Silk Road city of Samarkand, one of the oldest cities in Central Asia
  • Admire the UNESCO-listed site of Khiva with its ornate palaces, mosques and crenelated walls
  • Visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Kunya-Urgench, a deserted city with 11th-16th century ruins
  • Spend two days at the incredible Turkmen site of Merv, with its vast ruins that span over many centuries
