It is first important to know that Central Asia has a more friendly approach to Islam than its neighbors in Pakistan and Afghanistan. It is an Muslim region, so it’s crucial to be aware in certain regions. Although both genders can wear shorts or T-shirts in the cities, they must not be wearing T-shirts with long sleeves. But, those who visit places of worship should wear pants that do not go below the knees and tops that cover shoulders. Women should also wear a headscarf. On this trip, we will be exploring remote regions which are rarely visited by tourists. The locals are modest in their attire and therefore you’re likely to feel more comfortable wearing quite conservative clothing too.
