Learn the art of silk weaving with a visit to Margilan. Once a vital, ancient caravan route for Chinese and Western trade, the city is renowned for its beautiful, handmade silk products. We will enjoy an interactive session at a craftsman’s workshop and studio.

Moreover, gain further insight into the intertwining identity of the ‘Crossroad of Culture’, Samarkand.
