Places You'll See

  • Turkmenistan

    One of the least known of the ‘Stans” and notorious for its absurd regime, Turkmenistan has an ancient history along the Great Silk Road that once linked the eastern and western worlds through extensive trade. Turkmenistan’s landscape majorly consists of Central Asia’s largest desert, the Karakum, and other peculiar natural sites such as The Darvaza gas crater, also known as the Door to Hell. Known for its carpet-making, be sure to take home an ornate masterpiece as a remembrance of your travels and of the welcoming hospitality of the Turkmens.

  • Uzbekistan

    Known as the heart of the Silk Road, Uzbekistan offers bewildering sites filled to the brim with history, making it one of Central Asia’s most sought-after destinations. Teeming with culture, Uzbekistan is home to many ancient relics and holy sites including one of the oldest manuscripts of the Koran. Nature lovers and adventure seekers will fall in love with Uzbekistan’s diverse nature while foodies will be salivating over some of the most flavorful gastronomy in the east.

  • Tajikistan

    Simply calling Tajikistan “mountainous” truly dismisses the astounding landscape of the country. With more than 90% of the area being upland, locals have adapted to the harsh conditions of the region high above their neighbors, Afghanistan, Kyrgyzstan, and Uzbekistan. While Tajikistan’s snowcapped peaks call adventurers to their summits, the hospitality of the locals will be sure to keep them warm no matter the season.

  • Kazakhstan

    Thanks to its abundance of oil reserves, Kazakhstan is the most economically advance country of Central Asia, allowing the nation to offer some of the finest accommodations and dining experiences in the region. The capital, Nur-Sultan once served as the central trading hub of the region and now welcomes visitors by adorning bold, ultramodern architecture while the largest city in Kazakhstan, Almaty provides a chic atmosphere of shops and nightlife similar to Europe. Venturing outside the city limits, visitors are greeted with astounding landscapes and cultural experiences with the warm locals.

  • Kyrgyzstan

    With a history as vast as are its mountains are tall, Kyrgyzstan is a culturally rich destination that spans centuries. Once an important crossing point of the Silk Road, Kyrgyzstan today remains virtually unchanged with its pristine nature. Traditionally nomadic people, Kyrgyz await to share their traditions and heritage with visitors with open arms.
