Dushanbe

— 3 nights
Little more than a small town at the turn of the 20th century, Dushanbe grew rapidly during the Soviet era and now serves as the national capital and home to nearly 800,000 people.
Step out of Dushanbe with an excursion to Hisor Fortress in Hisor--about 42 minutes away. There's much more to do: make a trip to Flagpole with the Flag of Tajikistan, walk around Rudaki Park, appreciate the history behind Statue of Ismoil Somoni, and take in the exciting artwork at NOOR ART GALLERY.

You can plan Dushanbe trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

Tokyo, Japan to Dushanbe is an approximately 16-hour flight. You can also do a combination of car and ferry. You'll gain 4 hours traveling from Tokyo to Dushanbe due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Tokyo in September, expect nights in Dushanbe to be slightly colder, around 14°C, while days are a bit warmer, around 38°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 10th (Fri) to allow time to travel to Marguzor.

Caravans loaded with goods passed through Tajikistan when the ancient Silk Road ran through this country; today, it is one of the world's poorest and least explored nations. Devastated by the civil war of the 1990s, Tajikistan tourism has recently bounced back, as the country's unspoiled mountain landscapes attract a growing number of daring climbers and adventurous travelers. Picturesque highland villages welcome foreign explorers searching for an authentic Central Asian experience in a place seemingly frozen in time. Roads are practically nonexistent in many places and public transport unreliable, but the hospitable Tajiks treat visitors with such warmth and kindness you're not likely to mind the lack of amenities and modern distractions.
