  • Finest shopping at Yodgorlik Silk...

    Marghilon Shopping

    Either before or after the factory tour you can also buy at their shop. I can only highly recommend to buy here (rather than in the bazaars wherever you are in Uzbekistan), as you can be 100% sure that all silk was made here and you will get very reasonable prices = the real prices.

  • Visit Yodgorlik Silk Factory

    Marghilon Things to Do

    According to their website, it is the biggest silk manufacturing factory in Uzbekistan where most of the work is done by hand and where mostly natural dyes are used to colour the silk.

  • Some cars made a looong journey

    Farg'ona Local Customs

    Something I noticed in eastern Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan have been the “cars from western Europe”. In Germany we would say, something falls from a truck, meaning that it is stolen. For the cars I was not quite sure, as it could well have been that some Uzbek traders bought tons of older or used minibusses in western Europe to sell them in their...
