Central Asia

4.3
Bordered by Caspian Sea in the west and China in the east, Central Asia remains the land of many contrasts and hidden treasures, where the past and the present blur into one. Snow-capped mountain ranges rise east of the desert and steppes, and examples of Persian architecture stand juxtaposed with Soviet-era high-rises. The romance of the Silk Route is still well preserved in blue-domed medieval cities, ancient caravanserais, traditional hammam bathhouses, bustling bazaars, and remote nomadic yurts. With a wealth of nightclubs, Almaty remains one of the rare cities in Central Asia where you can party until the wee hours. Whether you want to admire some of the world's finest Islamic architecture in Samarkand, or share a meal with Kyrgyz herders, Central Asia tourism offers chances for both. Central Asia is in Asia.
