Uzbekistan offers larger-than-life storybook kingdoms in the form of stunningly gorgeous medieval architecture, accentuated by colorful traditional garb, aromatic spices and charming people. Kyrgyzstan flaunts jaw-dropping mountain backdrops against an awe-inspiring nomadic culture, hospitable families and a surprising patchwork of ancient and Soviet-era remnants.
