Silk Road Travel Specialist
The Silk Road crosses a huge area with thousands of miles and various countries and cultures. When planning a trip it is possible to centre in on one aspect in the region such as the architecture of Iran or the cities of Uzbekistan but a great way to get more from your trip is to combine two or more countries, there are natural highlights and beautiful landscapes that can be combined with the cities to stop architecture or history overload, after the madrassahs of Samarkand hop in to Tajikistan to see the mountains or cross in to Armenia to visit lakes and ancient monuments after the mosques and palaces of Iran.

Carl's Tips
Distances are huge and road journeys are unavoidable. Use them to see some of the smaller sites along the way though that fewer tourists visit.
Stay with locals – there are homestays across the region where you can meet people and experience home cooked food.
Shop! the Silk Road grew out of trade and there are plenty of markets and bazaars in which you can buy everything from handicrafts to camels and cars!
