Khiva Favorites: 9 reviews and 28 photos
Fondest memory: As you wander through the sun-baked streets and lanes of Khiva do take time to notice not just the architecture but also the details which will provide variety and add atmosphere to your photos. A carved door, an especially beautiful piece of tile work, a small window letting in a shaft of light – all these will contribute to the overall picture you paint of this gem of a city.
Even more so will images of the people add to the story your photos can tell and, as everywhere in Uzbekistan, most will be very happy to have their pictures taken. Look out for friendly shopkeepers, smiling children and Uzbek families visiting the sights. And make sure you look down the side streets too as their tranquillity can make them seem as if nothing has changed in them for centuries.
