A tour in Uzbekistan, whether or not combined with one or more neighboring countries, often starts and ends at the airport of the capital Tashkent.

However, if you would like to start or end the trip in Khiva in the northwest, there is the additional option of instead of covering the distance Khiva-Tashkent again (assuming you travel between the cities anyway and visit Samarkand and Bukhara along the way) to fly back from Urgench.

This is a provincial town half an hour’s drive from Khiva with an international airport and direct flights to the hub Istanbul several times a week. A convenient way to save time, money and CO2!
