Step back in time with a visit to the ‘stans’ – land of soaring minarets, blue-domed mosques and strikingly unique architecture. Historically positioned in the crossroads of important trading routes, the influence of the Silk Road – bringing a mix of traditions, cultures and wealth – can still be seen today, and adventurous travellers can explore the ancient route.
An immense region, Central Asia is also full of beautiful landscapes, with sweeping desert, awe-inspiring canyons, shimmering lakes, vast steppe plains, huge mountains and meandering valleys.
From train journeys which follow the glories of the Silk Road to art and architectural tours of Uzbekistan, Cox & Kings has created group tours and suggested itineraries to showcase the best of the region.
Alternatively, if you would like to create your own itinerary in consultation with a Central Asia expert, please fill out the tailor-made form and a Cox & Kings tour consultant will help to create your perfect holiday.
