"Wander the alleyways at dusk of this ancient Silk Road city. You get a real sense of history and can feel the "ghosts" of the Silk Road traders and camel trains that stopped here during their journey."

Where is Khiva?

"The ancient city is located on the edge of the Khorezm Desert in Western Uzbekistan, on the Turkmenistan border. It's approximately a 1-hour flight to Urgench from the capital, Tashkent."
