Uzbekistan: The golden road to Samarkand
The Golden Road to Samarkand is what we’ve come to expect from Odyssey travel guides: a large, comprehensive book on the country, with practical information intermixed with copious notes on history and culture of Uzbekistan. Of all the Odyssey guides, this one ranks as my favourite: the in-depth knowledge and top-notch writing of the 2 authors is unsurpassed in the guidebook industry.
It was updated in 2014, making this the best choice for discerning readers traveling to (or simply interested in) Uzbekistan. Nobody
Bradt guide to Uzbekistan
Not as comprehensive as the Odyssey guide, with a writing and editing mostly geared to the practical, down-to-earth business of traveling. Find a full review here.
