The PERFECT Uzbekistan Itinerary for Every Traveller (2023)

Minor Mosque Tashkent

If you’re looking for the perfect 1, 2 or 3-week Uzbekistan itinerary, we’ve got you covered!

Uzbekistan is a land unknown to the vast majority of travellers. One of only two double landlocked nations in existence, it sits in the heart of Central Asia, an area of the world mostly known for the old silk road and the former Soviet Union. 

In recent years Uzbekistan has grown in popularity amongst the travel community.

The visa process has become significantly easier, you can now change your dollars, euros, pounds and yen at banks and it is now easier than ever to get around. 

This is a great time to visit Uzbekistan and we look forward to helping you plan your trip!

The Perfect Uzbekistan Travel Itinerary

All of our travel itineraries start and end in Tashkent, as the vast majority of travellers arrive in Uzbekistan via air.

However, if you are entering the country overland then these itineraries can be altered based on the closest destination of the border crossing.

Because it is not really possible to visit both the Aral Sea and the Fergana Valley in the same 2-week Uzbekistan itinerary we have included 2 options from which to choose.

7-Day Uzbekistan Itinerary 

This 7 day Uzbekistan itinerary will get you to Uzbekistan’s major sites. However, be prepared for some early starts and the possibility of a night train!

Day 1: Tashkent

Start your journey in Central Asia’s largest city, Tashkent. Although it doesn’t get a lot of love from the travel community I absolutely loved Tashkent and would recommend spending a bit of time there.

Spend your first day getting acclimatised by taking a wander around Tashkent’s Soviet architecture around the Navoi Theatre.

Head over to Tashkent’s Islamic University to check out some lovely Islamic architecture before relaxing Alisher Navoi park. 

As the sun begins to set, head over to the rather spectacular Minor Mosque for some spectacular photos as the sunsets behind it.

For dinner head down the area around Amir Timur square fills stalls, games and inline skaters. There are a couple of decent eateries nearby which a worth checking out.
