It is first crucial to be aware that Central Asia has a more open-minded approach towards Islam than its neighbours in Pakistan and Afghanistan. But, it must be remembered that it is technically considered to be a Muslim region , and thus a little bit of caution must be taken in some areas. T-shirts and long shorts are suitable for men and women in cities, however if visiting any active mosques people should wear trousers that fall below the knee and tops that cover shoulders. The use of a head scarf is advised for females. This trip takes us on remote areas that aren’t typically frequented by tourists. The people of the area are modest in their attire and so you are likely to feel more at ease in a conservative dress code too.

Language & Religion

Tajikistan’s official language is Tajik. Russian is still extensively used to communicate and for business.

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

Food and beverages

The meals on this tour tends to be mostly on soups, meat and potatoes. In the remote and higher altitude areas vegetables can be difficult to come by. There are plenty of dried fruits and nuts available to taste.

Regarding alcohol, options are mainly limited to vodka or beer so anyone wanting something else – Scotch or Gin for example – should purchase it duty-free and take it home. It isn’t easy to find mixer drinks such as tonic water.
