review 28 Sep 2017

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Uzbekistan as a whole was the most interesting part of the trip. The night in a yurt in the mountains in Kyrgyzstan came a close second, with spectacular views of the Milky Way.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Make sure you try the local food. Take socks and a torch for your night in the yurt, and a spoon and fork for picnic lunches. Take a fabric carrier bag for your shopping so you don't have to use a plastic bag.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

We visited local restaurants and bought local food. Plastic water bottles are a real problem creating litter almost everywhere. We were encouraged (rightly so) to hold onto and refill one smaller plastic bottle from a larger bottle supplied by the leader.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

This was a really memorable experience, full of contrast.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The livestock market at Kashgar.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

It was very hot throughout, so take loose, cool clothing.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Supported local people by eating in some homes.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

It was very interesting, with an insight into post Russian life. The scenery in Kyrgyzstan was spectacular. The only downside was the guide in China was poor and we didn't spend enough time in the market.
