Gordon Jay Thawkwell 5 star review | Travel All Russia

Silk Road exotic travel

Gordon Jay Thawkwell from United States traveled to Almaty, Tashkent, Bukhara, Samarkand, Ashgabat in 2018

I chose a rather exotic destination for my vacation but I am not disappointed. I really liked Almaty and the other cities! I must say, that before this trip I've only been to Europe and had a rusty idea about Japan after my short business trips. But here, in Kazakhstan, Turkmenia I saw something different, something fresh. Almaty looks like a Russian city since it used to be a part of the Soviet Union, but, of course, at the same time, it does not lack Asian spirit. The greatest discovery were bazaars, here I saw local Muslims, I appreciated a lot their friendliness and the enthusiasm they showed while talking to the customers.

I also visited other nearby countries, Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan, unfortunately, I can not remember the names of all the sights that I saw in Ashgabat and Bukhara, but this is not because they are not worth mentioning.

I am absolutely glad that I chose Travel All Russia, everything was fine and glitch-free throughout the entire journey. I want to say a special thanks for the service, everything worked like clockwork for no delays and deviations from the schedule.
