We could wax lyrical for hours on end about the extraordinary Tien Shan Mountains, the enchanting town of Bukhara, or the glimmering Son Kul Lake with a horizon that’s dotted with yurts, but we will spare you some time and show you why you need to visit The Silk Road!
Theres something about the architecture in Central Asia that is like no place else on the planet. The use of deep and vibrant colors, specifially blue, turquoise, and purple that makes for some incredible buildings. Take a look at the type of architecture you can expect to see along the silk road.
