If you have been interested in the ancient Silk Road that started in China and went up to Turkey (Gateway to Europe), you will find three of the Silk Road's most significant cities in Uzbekistan i.e Khiva, Bukhara and Samarkand.

These cites were the important stops for the traders in the past and even today these destinations reflect their glorious past with great architecture, colorful markets, historical sites and of course lovely people.

With great connectivity to these cities by fast trains and flights from Taskent, I would like to recommend 'Must-Visit' destinations during your trip to Uzbekistan as below.
