One thing to remember about travel in Central Asia is that most regions, especially the towns and cities, have a much more laid-back attitude to Islam than their neighbours to the south in Afghanistan and Pakistan. However, it should also be noted that it is technically a Muslim area, so caution is recommended in certain areas. Both women and men can wear T-shirts and shorts in the city, they should not wear T-shirts with long sleeves. But, those who visit active mosques should wear pants that are below the knees and wear tops that cover the shoulders. A head scarf is also advised for women. The tour takes us to remote locations that aren’t normally frequented by tourists. Local people are modest in dress therefore it is probable that you will feel more comfortable wearing conservative clothing.
