Central Asia’s holiest city - UNESCO World Heritage-listed Bukhara

The twilight hours in Bukhara lend themselves to wandering - the mulberry-lined heart of Central Asia’s holiest and most monument-strewn city is all long shadows and amber light, with the robed residents ambling the mosaic-tile streets after the evening call to prayer. Settle in for dinner at a chaikhana by the waters of Lyab-i-Hauz, a tea house by an ancient rectangular pool, watch the sun set behind the silhouette of a mosque-top crescent moon, and get to know the locals. Chaikhanas are the best place to eat and interact with resident Bukharis, relax after some friendly haggling in the city’s famed trading domes and to wonder at the tangible magic and serene beauty of this glorious city.
