The most memorable was Kasger Sunday Market. (more)Mahesh Patel

Memorable parts? The people we met, the range of places we visited, the quality of our guides. The drive through the Karakoram Mountain range from Kashgar to Tashkurgen Tips? Don't go with any fixed ideas about what it might be like. Be open to everything you see. Local benefits? Yes. Overall rating? The holiday was excellent and I would recommend it to others. If I was redesigning the itinerary I would not include the Yadan National Geologic Park - too much driving... (more)Gill Forester

Memorable parts? I have never said this before, but the entire trip was both memorable and exciting! I felt I experienced the real Kazakhstan - from the people to the landscape to the culture. Tips? Be prepared by having good walking shoes and be open to trying a wide array of foods that we don't normally have in Western culture. Local benefits? Absolutely! Overall rating? On a scale of 1 - 10, this was 1000! (more)April Tuck

The UNESCO-listed walled, old city of Khiva, known as Ichon Qala, was the unexpected gem of this trip. Also, swimming in the man-made Lake Aidarkul in the middle of the Kyzylkum desert was a surprising and relaxing pleasure. (more)Christine Biggs
Visiting the silk road cities of Samarkand, Khiva and Bukhara and having time to wander in each place and admire the reconstructed buildings. The guide Dilshod is extremely knowledgeable and a superb fixer. Uzbekistan is full of architectural surprises and friendly people. I would highly recommend a trip there. (more)Sally-Anne Deards
The Registan at Samarkand was the most memorable. Everything just led up to that experience. Excellent, mainly due to highly expert and very likable guide Dilshod. (more)Lesley Prosser

From

Memorable parts? Experiencing a rare storm in the desert on the journey to the shores of the Aral Sea. The tracks soon turned into raging streams, there was thunder and lightning and even hail. We had been prepared for dust but the 4X4 drivers quickly adapted to floods and mud so we had an exciting off road experience. Tips? The wild camping and spending a night in a yurt contrast well with sightseeing in the fabulous cities of Khiva, Bukhara and Samarkand. Be adaptable and enjoy... (more)Diana Rybinski

Finding a replica of a Tang Dynasty sancai glazed, funerary sculpture of a camel and rider, which I had first experienced as part of an exhibition of artefacts from the ancient Silk Route mounted by the British Library in 2004 in a shop in Jiayuguan at a price that I could afford. Even though the Mogao Grottos are becoming commercialised, being able to see the frescos that are available in the caves that are open to the public was a wonderful experience. Tips? Be...

The hospitable and very friendly people wherever we went - smiling faces all the way. Also the sheer vastness of Kyrgyzstan, which I loved - the dramatic mountain passes, the shepherds bringing their animals down from the high pastures. (more)Sara Warren
