The first thing to note about travel in Central Asia is that most regions, including the towns and cities have a much more laid-back approach to Islam as compared to their counterparts to the south of Afghanistan and Pakistan. But it is important to be noted that it is technically an Muslim region , and thus an extra dose of caution is required at certain locations. Long shorts and T-shirts are suitable for men and women in urban areas, but if visiting any active mosques everybody should wear trousers that fall below the knee, and tops that cover their shoulders. Women must also wear a headscarf. The trip takes us to remote locations that aren’t normally frequented by tourists.
