The Times recommends Samarkand as a destination
British magazine The Times has published 13 of the most enticing destinations to visit in 2023 and also recommends Samarkand as the most important destination. The prestigious British publication has included Silk Road Samarkand in its “Best Long-Range Destinations to Visit in 2023” report.
“Samarkand’s golden age fell in the era of the Great Silk Road, when Genghis Khan built a mighty empire. The dawn of the 21st century, however, is proving to be just as prosperous,” says The Times article.
The publication points out the remarkable opportunities to tour modern Uzbekistan on high-speed trains, visiting not only the famous Samarkand but also two other historic cities that fascinate travellers: Bukhara and Khiva.
The Times points out that the country’s top destination is Samarkand, with its “green-domed mosques and jewelled mausoleums”.
Now, the historic city’s opportunities are being brought together by the new luxury complex “Silk Road Samarkand”. The Samarkand Visitor Centre is close to the city centre and promises first-class hotels and dining,” says a review by the British publication.
Since its opening in August last year, the Silk Road Samarkand Tourism Complex has hosted more than two dozen events, including the SCO (the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation) Summit, the CIS (the Commonwealth of Independent States) Inter-Parliamentary Assembly, ICT Week Uzbekistan, the Uzbekistan Economic Forum, the Organisation of Turkish States Summit and many other international business and sporting events. Silk Road Samarkand’s diverse infrastructure allows it to attract the attention of a wide audience. First and foremost, the complex is aimed at guests who wish to explore the unique attractions of Samarkand without sacrificing the comforts to which they are accustomed.
