Overlooked for years but brought into the light thanks to television and Joanna Lumley, Uzbekistan, a historic crossroads on the Great Silk Route’s path across Central Asia, is home to an incredible number of photogenic mosques, mausoleums and madrasas in eye-popping cobalts, cyans and sapphire hues of blue.
You can also marvel at the ornately decorated metro station to rival those of St Petersburg, drink all kinds of vodka (neat, if you’re to do it like a local) alongside a hearty meat grill or a slice of supersweet watermelon, or head out into the desert for spectacular scarscapes.
