Silk Road Samarkand, Uzbekistan’s brand-new tourist cluster has opened to visitors, offering wellness services.
The variety of modern hotels, wellness services, restaurants and tourist attractions in the cluster promises to be transformative for the local tourism industry. It is the only tourist hub of such scale in Central Asia, and the resort is expected to double the number of tourists going to the region.
While the number of tourists will increase with the opening of the Silk Road resort, the type of tourist is also expected to diversify, with many coming on wellness trips.
Samarkand is famous for being on the Silk Road – the ancient trade route linking China to the Mediterranean.
