Female backpacking alone in UzbekistanHi there,
I have travelled to a lot of different places but have never been to Central Asia. How easy is it to travel around Uzbekistan and are there any backpacker places to stay in? What is the cheapest I can expect to pay for accommodation and how much are transport costs in general to visit the main tourist places? Am assuming there is no dormitory accommodation. Also is it easy to travel around on public transport? Not sure is many people speak English there.
I am not overkeen on tours but am wondering if I only have 12 days to visit Uzbekistan if it is easier to do a tour with exodus or a similar travel company. Any advice would be very much appreciated. Thanks, Sarah.

1No problems travelling alone af a female backpacker in Uzbekistan. Did it last year. I used trains between Tashkent and samarkand and otherwise shared taxi. I didnt go for the busses. There are backpackerplaces with dormitorys. In Tashkent at the Gulnara and in Samarkand at Bahodir. Those places also have double and single rooms. I never paid more than 20 USD for a single room, sometimes with own bathroom.
