A mystery waiting to be deciphered for most road trippers out there, nowhere in the world will you find peerless historical treasures embedded so beautifully in vivid cultural fabric as in Central Asia.
Comprising the five former USSR republics of Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan and Turkmenistan (also known as the Stans), Central Asia truly captures the essence of the erstwhile Silk Road.
The Stan Countries gained their independence as recently as the early 90s, and thus escaped the radar of the global traveller for nearly the entire 20th century. With their medieval cities peppered with azure domes, buzzing bazaars, incredible panoramas, and almost other-worldly yurt stays – this area of the world has something in store for all manners of visitors.
Imagine yourself behind the wheel of your own 4X4 SUV, cruising upon the untouched landscapes of these stupendously beautiful destinations with majestic mountain ranges like the Tian Shan looming large. Now, this is a road trip that will satisfy even the most finicky traveller; one who seeks nothing but the most exceptional.
