One thing to remember about travel in Central Asia is that most areas, specifically the towns and cities, have a much more laid-back approach to Islam as compared to their counterparts to the south in Afghanistan and Pakistan. It is a Muslim area so it is crucial to be aware when visiting certain areas. Although both genders can wear shorts or T-shirts in cities, they should not wear long sleeves or T-shirts. But, those who visit places of worship should wear pants which are lower than the knees and tops that cover the shoulders. Ladies should also wear a headscarf.

The local people are very modest in their dress and you’re likely to feel more comfortable dressed in conservative clothes too.
