The first thing you should know about travelling in Central Asia is that most areas, specifically the cities and towns, are much more relaxed attitude to Islam than their neighbours to the south of Afghanistan and Pakistan. Central Asia is a Muslim area , and it’s vital to be vigilant in specific areas. While both men and women can wear shorts or T-shirts in the cities, they must not be wearing T-shirts or sleeves that are long. But, those who visit places of worship should wear pants that are below the knees and tops that cover the shoulders. A head scarf is also advised for females. This trip takes us on remote places that are not usually visited by tourists. The people of the area are conservative in their dressing and therefore you’re likely to be more comfortable wearing quite conservative clothing too.
