Central Asia Opportunity

A July 1995 trip to Tashkent by midwst

Quote: Visited Tashkent while deciding on a job opportunity in Central Asia. Beautiful but run-down city at the time; lots of construction under way. Fascinating place and mix of people - Uzbeks, Russians, and small German population.

Central Asia Opportunity


Visit the local markets! I forgot my camera the day we went to visit the markets, but the mix of colors, animals, fruits, vegetables, smells, and people is unforgettable.

Quick Tips:

Take time to go visit Samarkand.

Best Way To Get Around:

Best to get around with a guide (and car) if possible. Buses were very crowded.
