The driving force behind Silk Voyage is born and raised in Uzbekistan, Durdona Kadirova, who settled in Belgium 10 years ago. She obviously knows her home country Uzbekistan inside out, but also knows, after spending 20 years abroad in several different countries, what it means to be a tourist or a foreigner…
And thanks to a wide expat life experience she has decided to launch Silk Voyage to offer unforgettable journeys in Central Asian and Caucasus countries, which are Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia.
Durdona grew up in the historic city of Shahrisabz. The city’s town centre is a Unesco World Heritage site, and it is the birthplace of the famous 14th century conqueror and ruler Tamerlane.
…..Maybe the passion and perseverance of Tamerlane run through Durdona’s veins… Or was she inspired to start her own business by her parents…? They set an example as owners of the magnificent Kesh Palace Hotel in… exactly, Shahrisabz.
