Tour Details

Central Asia tour

is a region that stretches from the Caspian Sea in the west to China in the east and from Afghanistan in the south to Russia in the north. It is also known as “the -stans” because the countries in the region all have names ending with the Persian suffix “-stan”, which means “land of”.Why should we book the Central Asia tour?

Central Asia has a long and rich history. It has been home to a variety of cultures and peoples, including nomadic tribes, Silk Road merchants, and Muslim empires. The region has also been a crossroads for trade and cultural exchange between Europe, Western Asia, South Asia, and East Asia.

This crossroads position has led to a conflict between traditionalism and modernization. On the one hand, Central Asia is home to a number of traditional cultures that have been preserved for centuries. On the other hand, the region is also undergoing rapid modernization, as new technologies and ideas are introduced from the West. This conflict is likely to continue to shape the future of Turkistan.
