Suggested Packing List (Central Asia)

The dress code throughout all Wendy Wu Tours is casual. Loose fitting, lightweight cotton materials are the most comfortable for humid weather, while layers of warmer clothes are advised for cooler evenings, however, it is important that all passengers dress conservatively when visiting places of worship.. 

Modest clothing such as long lightweight pants and shirts that cover your shoulders for men and 
women is highly recommended. Headscarves for ladies are required for visits to mosques and 
madrassas throughout Central Asia. 

We recommend that you check the weather forecast prior to your departure so that you can pack accordingly. You can also refer to our climate page for more information.
