With the largest population in Central Asia and the world’s fourth-largest exporter of cotton, Uzbekistan is a diverse and rewarding destination for any traveler.

Start your journey in Tashkent, the bustling capital city with many cultural gems like the centuries-old Registan market and Mausoleum of Sheikh Zayd al-Din. From here, head to Bukhara, one of Central Asia's oldest cities, home to over 140 historical monuments like the Ismail Samani mausoleum and Lyab-i Hauz. Visit Samarkand, a UNESCO World Heritage Site boasting incredible architecture such as the Gur Emir Mausoleum and Shah-i Zinda complex.

Uzbekistan also offers some of the most breathtaking scenery in Central Asia. Explore the unique landscape of Charvak Lake or go rock climbing at Chimgan Mountains. Don't miss the mysterious element of Aral Sea, once the world's fourth largest lake which has since largely dried up creating an unusual desert coastline.

For those looking for something off the beaten path, nature lovers can explore Nahotki National park where you can find amazing wildlife including cheetahs and leopards! An interesting fact about Uzbekistan is that the country has more than 2,000 historical monuments - more than any other country in Central Asia!
