Buxoro, Samarkand and Taskent, Uzbekistan
(9 - 16 December 2009)
Uzbekistan is within the South-Central Asian Union and has borders with other member states of Afghanistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Turkmenistan. It is doubly landlocked, but includes the southern shoreline of the Aral Sea.
Uzbekistan is a former Soviet republic. It's known for its mosques, mausoleums and other sites linked to the Silk Road, the ancient trade route between China and the Mediterranean. For this trip, we joined a few Bank Negara ladies to trace the ancient Silk Route in Uzbekistan and would be visiting the historical cities of Bukhara, Samarkand and Tashkent.
The Tour Leader for this trip is Ustaz Sobri of Poto Travel.
