Editorial Reviews

Korea - From the bustling city of Seoul with its 10 million residents to the country's quite countryside, Korea is a travelers paradise. With their misty mountain temples and the uber-modern cities, Koreans mix an abiding sense if history and traditions with a zeal to achieve global success in technology and other industries. Rudy Maxa samples both the delights of cosmopolitan Seoul as well as the tranquility of temples tucked into lush mountains where monks invite guests to stay overnight. And the countryside explains South Korea's other name: The Land of the Morning Calm.

Uzbekistan - In one of his series' most colorful and exotic episodes, Maxa takes viewers along the Silk Road in a country that is an emerging economy in Central Asia. Marvel at eye-popping mosques built centuries ago and impeccably restored during Soviet occupation of the country. Maxa joins a family for the preparation of the national dish, "plov" and visits the yurt of a young family living on an isolated desert plain. Explore trade-route cities whose names summon images of ancient times: Samarkand, Khiva, and Bukhara. This is a front-row seat to a country trying to balance Islam with modern society.

3.0 out of 5 stars I couldn't care less about Uzbekistan March 14, 2014
By Leonard

Rudy Maxa has the annoying habit of packaging interesting cities or countries with boring cities or countries. This is not a politically correct statement, but I simply don't care about Third World countries. Korea and Uzbekistan seem like such a random combination. It might as well have been Korea and Uganda. Besides Western Europe, my favorite cities are the high-tech cities in the Far East (Tokyo, Seoul, Hong Kong, Taipei, Singapore, Shanghai). Couldn't Rudy have put South Korea on the same DVD as Japan or China?

Just to justify spending my money on this DVD, I decided to watch the Uzbekistan episode. Uzbekistan is located along the former route of the Silk Road. Marco Polo used to travel along the Silk Road to China. Uzbekistan is essentially a bunch of mosques and markets. Since it's a majority-Muslim country, most of the women dress conservatively. The capital, Tashkent, is somewhat modern, but I was bored after watching 10 minutes of this episode.

The South Korea episode was much more interesting. Downtown Seoul looked nice, like Tokyo-lite. There were a lot of attractive Korean women. Kimchi is the national dish (though they also enjoy dumplings). While the Koreans party and shop, they are diligent people who study. Rudy briefly rode the Seoul Metro, which is a clean and modern subway system. He later went to a Buddhist temple out of town. Hiking is also popular in South Korea, which has beautiful forests.

My wife and I love this video! We both want to go to both Korea and Uzbekistan now as a result of watching this video. I totally want to go to Samarkand (Uzbekistan) now!

5.0 out of 5 stars Shows always too short! June 25, 2013

. Rudy Maxa beats Rick Steeves hands down for traveling in style and comfort, and not traveling on the "cheap," With Maxa's way, you know after a long day of sight seeing and enjoying the area, you can dine, rest, relax, take a shower and sleep in YOUR OWN suite without sharing it with a half dozen smelly, sweaty strangers who also have been traveling the world stage on the "cheap!" If you want to really enjoy traveling and enjoy the end of your day out after enjoying the food and sights, then travel in style like Rudy Maxa does and you'll really enjoy it!
