- Start your day early with a hearty breakfast at home. Pack a hamper with light lunch, snacks, and hydrating drinks. Choose a comfortable pair of shoes as you'll be spending the day on your feet. Embark on your journey towards one of Tashkent's botanical parks, of which the Tashkent Botanical Garden is highly recommended.
- Upon arriving, absorb the tranquil atmosphere of the garden, blooming with exotic flowers and diverse plant species. Explore the sights and scents together, hand in hand, strolling through different plant ecosystems. Spot butterflies and birds that radiate the charm of the park.
- When hunger pangs hit, find a cozy spot under a tree for a romantic picnic. Spread out your blanket and unpack your lunch, enjoying the natural serenity surrounding you. Wrap up your day with a beautiful sunset view in the park, creating a perfect end to your day.
- Pack casual clothing, and comfortable footwear for your walk. Prepare a picnic hamper equipped with sandwiches, salads, fruits, snacks, and drinks. Don't forget a blanket to sit on. Go eco-friendly by packing your meal in reusable containers.
- But before you head out, do check the weather forecast for the day. Umbrellas or sun hats could be necessary depending on the weather. Carry a basic first aid kit, just in case of minor injuries.
- Take a map of the Tashkent Botanical Garden to help with navigation. Alternatively, download an offline map on your phone. Remember to pack a fully-charged power bank to keep your phones active throughout the day.
- In places like botanical gardens, respecting the environment is paramount. Don't pick flowers or leaves and remember to take all trash with you when you leave. The golden rule is 'Leave nothing but footprints, take nothing but photos'.
- Don't rush through the day, remember you're here to spend quality time. Take as many breaks as you want, observe the plants, and simply enjoy each other's company.
- Lastly, while packing your picnic, keep in mind that healthier foods like fruits and salads are much better suited for a day of activity. Avoid packing anything that can perish in the heat.
