Uzbekistan travel guide

4.3
Landmarks · Sacred & Religious Sites · Historic Sites
Although it only gained full independence in 1991, Uzbekistan boasts a rich history filled with legendary conquests by the likes of Tamerlane and Alexander the Great. Major tourist attractions in Uzbekistan include centuries-old cities (once oases along the Silk Road), seemingly endless deserts, soaring mountains that serve as popular ecotourism playgrounds, and ancient fortresses untouched by the passage of time. Visitors flock to this landlocked Central Asian country to hike, ski, bird-watch, and stay in traditional yurt camps. Consider beginning your tour of Uzbekistan in Tashkent, where modern glass-fronted office buildings stand in stark contrast to decaying Soviet-era apartment blocks.

Land of Fire
A holiday in Azerbaijan allows intrepid travelers to discover a history-steeped country sitting at the crossroads of Southeastern Europe and Southwest Asia, an area once controlled by a succession of ancient empires. With its dual Eurasian character, Azerbaijan remains a highly intriguing destination, with tourism one of the top contributors to the country's booming economy. Many begin their tour of Azerbaijan in World Heritage-listed Baku, a cosmopolitan city boasting innovative architecture and a well-preserved historic core. A short drive out of this thriving capital, you can explore timeless villages surrounded by thick orchards and flanked by the majestic Caucasus Mountains.

Kazakhstan travel guide

4
Parks · Lookouts · Churches
The world's biggest landlocked country, Kazakhstan boasts a thriving economy resting almost entirely on huge reserves of natural gas and oil. While some travelers find its seemingly endless and largely featureless steppe unappealing, others take a trip to Kazakhstan precisely because of these unspoiled stretches. If you wanted, you could certainly spend your entire vacation in Kazakhstan completely alone, exploring the sprawling, empty horizons. If you want a little company, mingle with the highly urbanized locals in Almaty or Astana, two big cities featuring broad tree-lined avenues, hip cafes, giant malls, and many innovative buildings that seem plucked right out of a science fiction novel.

Turkmenistan travel guide

3.8
Ruins · Landmarks · Geologic Formations
With a population of just 5 million and the majority of its area part of one of the driest deserts on the planet, Turkmenistan remains one of the world's least explored destinations. Known largely for the eccentric dictatorship of Saparmyrat Niyazov, who died in 2006, this desert land boasts great natural beauty and centuries-old traditions. A tour of Turkmenistan reveals a series of thriving cities, once important stops on the ancient Silk Road. Probably the most convenient of the country's urban centers, Ashgabat serves as the national capital and most developed city, known for its white-marble buildings housing theaters, museums, and shopping malls.
