Hi everyone! I usually housesit and work when I travel but after a year and a half of being stuck at home, I think I’m going to treat myself to booking a bit of an adventure with no work or sitting responsibilities attached for some time next year.
I’m looking at visiting Central Asia, specifically Uzbekistan. The region has always been on my bucket list, the history is fascinating and I am dying to see the architecture of Samarkand and Khiva in person. I’d love to do a full Silk Road tour but will probably only have 2 weeks for this so I don’t want to rush anything. Has anyone been to Uzbekistan? I’d love any tips or must-see spots!
I’m also considering booking this through a tour company which is a little nervewracking as I usually do all travel planning myself, but for the first time, I am kind of into the idea of all the preparation being taken care of, especially in a region that I know so little about. I know most folks here are probably more like me and prefer to take care of things themselves, but it’s worth asking, has anyone here ever been on a trip with Intrepid Travel? Or any other company they would recommend that deals with slightly off-the-beaten path destinations?
