It is common to interact with locals, each with their unique customs and traditions. You are asked to be respectful and considerate towards the local population. Your tour-guides and tour-leaders are always able to provide you with the appropriate advice.
The first thing to note about travel in Central Asia is that most areas, specifically the cities and towns, are much more relaxed attitude to Islam than their neighbors to the south in Afghanistan and Pakistan. But it is important to be kept in mind that this is technically a Muslim region , and thus some caution is recommended in some areas. Both women and men can wear T-shirts and shorts in the city, they should not be wearing long sleeves or T-shirts. But, those who visit places of worship should wear pants that fall below the knees and tops that cover shoulders. A head scarf is also advised for women. This tour takes us to remote places that are not typically frequented by tourists. Local people are modest when it comes to dressing, therefore it is probable that you’ll be more comfortable wearing conservative clothing.
Language & Religion
The official language of Tajikistan is Tajik. Russian is still widely used for business and communication.
A majority of the population adhere to Sunni Islam, with the minority of them following Russian Orthodox, Catholicism, Buddhism and Judaism.
Drinks and food
The focus of this tour is meats and soups. It can be difficult to locate in remote areas or at higher elevations. There are plenty of dried nuts and dried fruits to sample.
With regard to alcohol, the options are generally limited to vodka and beer. Those who want something different – Scotch or Gin for example – should purchase it duty free and then bring it to the store. It isn’t easy to locate mixer drinks such as tonic water.
