This has been a fabulous year for us with so many of our Central Asia and Caucasus specialty regions being named top travel destinations for 2020! Conde Nast, Lonely Planet, The Financial Times, Wendy Perrin... My part of the world is growing rapidly as a must-see place!
Our guides and local experts helped me create our own Silk Road Tours Travel Bucket list for 2020. This should help you your search for your next adventure with us. We're specialists in customizing small group, niche travel or independent itineraries for your travel style and budget. Tell us what you're interested in and we'll help you get there. We have everything from trains, archaeology, history, architecture, food, shopping, or a little bit of everything! All of our trips are customized for your travel style and budget. Want a fantastic family trip? A memorable anniversary? The best birthday ever? Let the experts weave their magic for you.
I hope you join us at the New York Times Travel Show this weekend! We're at Booth 259 in the Asia Pavilion. I have a few complimentary tickets and there will be lively Dance performances on the Orange stage both Saturday and Sunday afternoons.
Can't be there? You can still take advantage of our Travel Show Discounts and Monthly Deals. Just check the website, they're updated regularly. For repeat clients who have traveled with us at least twice there’s an additional $500 USD for their next trips with us.
Spring is the ultimate time for travel to Central Asia and the Caucasus, with everlasting blue skies and sunshine, the wild flowers are blooming and the temperatures are perfect. We’ve got seats for you at the Silk and Spices Festival in May in Uzbekistan, a place for you at the table to celebrate Navruz New Year in March in Central Asia and an opportunity to witness an over-the-top exciting World Nomad Games in Turkey this September.
Turkey is a wonderful bridge to our destinations in the Caucasus. Georgia's tourism increased almost 20% this last year (Oh, the food! Have you ever tried khachapuri?). Armenia was top of the list at the Financial Times Where to Go 2020 and Azerbaijan lures the intrepid traveller to its European capital on the Caspian and its rural villages and Zoroastrian history.
Check out the other unusual events on offer in this part of the world and the chance for VIP attendance; at the equestrian games in Turkmenistan and Kyrgyzstan, the Melon Festival in Uzbekistan, the Carpet and Pomegranate festivals in the Caucasus, and Naadam in Mongolia.
Thinking even further ahead? For winter 2020, we’ve got our eye on tours to South East Asia, starting with Vietnam and Cambodia! We’ll soon be debuting our newest tour to Cambodia and Vietnam for your winter holidays.
We have several presentations lined up this year at Travel Shows, Universities, Museums, libraries and travel clubs. Let us know if you'd like to be on that list. After the New York Times Travel Show we'll be jumping right into Travel Guru Wendy Perrin's Top Travel Expert Summit.
Then we'll be sharing our traveler's experiences with you on Facebook, Instagram and right here in our newsletter!
We’ll see you soon,
