Samarkhand was definitely one of the coolest cities we’ve ever visited. The ancient sites are so jaw-droppingly gorgeous that you can’t help but to take 100 photos of each one. The entire city was laid out so nicely that we could actually see ourselves living there. Check out this video and see each of the best sites in this amazing city of wonder.

  1. Hi Nick and Dariece, I truly enjoyed watching the video about Samarkhand and it makes me even more excited for my own trip to Uzbekistan. I will be flying to Tashkent on the 17th July and besides the Uzbek capital I will be visiting Samarkhand, Bukhara, Khiva and a place called Aydar Kŭl where I will spend one night in a yurt camp. I am so excited and so much looking forward to it. Thanks so much for giving an insight into Uzbekistan and for the inspiration. 🙂

  2. Hi there, I saw the mini-movie about Samarkand, which is nice. I leave in Uzbekistan, in Tashkent. The first thing I noticed that music (background music) is not Uzbek style but Kazakh or Kyrgyz. Maybe, since you were traveling via 5 Stan countries you mixed it. But for authenticity, maybe, it would be best to play Uzbek music while displaying Uzbekistan.

    If you need, I can share some of classic or even modern and popular music samples for you, to better reflect Uzbek culture and traditions.

    I was thinking of running starting own blog and your blog is the right place for me to learn and get inspired.

    Good luck and keep posting!
