Central Asia

Central Asia is the ultimate emerging destination. 

I spent 5 months traveling pretty much non-stop around Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, and Tajikistan and it was one of the best experiences of my lifetime. 

From absolutely jaw-dropping mountain scenery to some of the most mind-blowing mosques and madrassas and just extremely ancient history, I strongly recommend Central Asia to any traveler with a sense of adventure, willing to explore a real off the beaten track destination. 

Let me give you a very quick overview of what each of these 4 countries can offer:

KYRGYZSTAN

The cheapest of all the Stans is really easy to travel and it is good for those interested in nature, trekking, horses and nomadic culture
