After spending one action-packed day in Khiva with my fellow content creators from the World Influencers Congress, we were off to our next city, Bukhara! Come along with me as I share my first impressions of Bukhara, an ancient UNESCO Silk Road city in Uzbekistan!
My day began in Khiva the day after our incredible feast at Khiva Karakul. I was super excited to travel to Bukhara, which is yet another beautiful, ancient city along the Silk Road. This ancient UNESCO Silk Road city dates back over 2,500 years and is one of the 7 holy cities in Islam. The city provided many important scholars to the Islamic world!
I kicked off my breakfast with some somsas, which are like the baked, Uzbek version of Indian samosas. It was nice and juicy and full of tasty meat!
After breakfast, I met up with the rest of the team as we prepared to leave Khiva. I love cities that are full of history like this! I was also loving getting to know my fellow travelers. It was one of the best experiences of my life!
We boarded the bus and rode to Urgench International Airport. My bag was already getting overweight at 25 kilos, but luckily, we were working with the airlines, so I didn’t have to pay extra.
My fellow travelers and I were all only running on a few hours of sleep, but I was psyched to hit the ground running in Bukhara.
And just like that, we were in Bukhara 30 minutes later! Immediately upon arriving, there were women at the airport offering stacks of fresh, fluffy, and buttery Uzbek bread! We had another 20-minute bus ride and then we arrived at a craft market selling clothing, hats, and more. There was also a band playing and a performer who lifted a bunch of kettle bells with his mouth!
Our first impressions of Bukhara was that this ancient UNESCO Silk Road city was epic! It was beautiful and looked like another incredible city to explore.
I tried some amazing figs at the hotel, which felt like an old house. It had a sick deck with a view of the minaret. My room also had a view of the minaret! I loved the room. It had two twin beds, which was all I needed! I only had 12 hours to explore, so I was ready to go!
I hope you enjoyed seeing my first impressions of Bukhara! If you did, please give it a thumbs up and leave me a comment below. Also, please subscribe to my YouTube channel so you don’t miss any of my upcoming travel/food adventures around the world!
