Amazing time on the Silk Road tour

Louise Brindle from United States traveled to Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan in 2017

We just got back from our private trip to Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan, exploring Silk Road. Well, to keep it short - worth every penny. But, if I had to pick a few things that I enjoyed the most, local guides, smooth transfers, and luxurious hotels would come high on top.

But if we leave tour organization out of it and evaluate the destinations, we traveled to, a few places pop in my mind. Exploring Bishkek with its odd-looking monuments and squares, impressive Burana tower (outside the city) and the stunning resort town Cholpon Ata, alongside the Karakol city had been eye-opening. It's hard to say why I find it so memorable, but there's something about Kyrgyz culture that I find entirely enigmatic. You have to visit the country to really understand what I mean here.

Overall, the trip was great. Planning my next one already!
