The first thing to say about travelling in Central Asia is that most areas, specifically the towns and cities, are more laid back in their attitude to Islam than their neighbours to the south of Afghanistan and Pakistan. However, it should also be remembered that it is technically an Muslim area, so caution is required in some areas. Although both women and men can wear shorts or T-shirts in cities, they should not wear T-shirts or sleeves that are long. However, anyone visiting active mosques should wear pants that do not go below the knees and tops that cover shoulders. Also, a headscarf is advised for females. The trip takes us to remote places that are not typically frequented by tourists. The people of the area are modest in their dress and you’re likely to feel more comfortable in a conservative dress code too.

Language & Religion

Tajik is the official tongue of Tajikistan. Russian is still widely used for business and communication.

The majority of the population follow Sunni Islam, with the minority of people who adhere to Russian Orthodox, Catholicism, Buddhism and Judaism.

Drinks and food

The food on this tour tends to focus heavily on soups, meat and potatoes. In the remote and higher altitude areas vegetables are difficult to find. There is an abundance of dried nuts and dried fruits for you to try.

The choices for alcohol are limited to beers or vodka. Anyone who wants to experiment with something else – such as Scotch or Gin should buy the alcohol duty-free and bring it with them. Mixer drinks, such as tonic water, can be difficult to come across, but.
