One thing to remember about traveling through Central Asia is that most regions, including the towns and cities have a much more laid-back attitude to Islam than their neighbors to the south in Afghanistan and Pakistan. However, it should also be kept in mind that it’s technically a Muslim region , and thus an extra dose of caution is recommended in some areas. T-shirts and shorts that are long are fine for both sexes in urban areas, but in the case of visiting any mosques active, people should wear trousers which are shorter than the knee and tops that cover their shoulders. Females should also be wearing a headscarf. While on this tour, we’ll be going to remote areas not often frequented by tourists. Locals tend to dress modestly, therefore it is probable that you’ll feel more comfortable in conservative clothing.

Tajik is the official language spoken in Tajikistan. Russian is used to conduct business and for communication.

Most people follow Sunni Islam. A small proportion of people are believers of Russian Orthodox, Catholicism and Buddhism.

Drinks and food

With regard to alcohol, options are mainly limited to vodka or beer. Those who want something else – Scotch or Gin for example – should buy it duty free and bring it with them. It isn’t easy to find mixer drinks , such as tonic water.
