It is first important to know that Central Asia has a more relaxed approach towards Islam than its neighbours in Pakistan and Afghanistan. However, it should be kept in mind that it’s technically considered to be a Muslim area, so some caution is required in certain places. Long shorts and T-shirts are fine for both sexes in cities, however should you visit any mosques with active worshippers, all visitors should wear pants that do not go below the knee and tops that cover their shoulders. Women should also wear an asymmetrical head scarf. On this trip, we will be traveling in remote locations not often frequented by tourists. Locals are extremely conservative in their dressing and you’re likely to feel more relaxed with your dress.
