I've done a brief search of the forum and can't seem to find a definitive answer, although I suppose there is no definitive answer to this question.
I have 6 days in Uzbekistan (would like more). 1 day I have to spend in Tashkent.
I've pencilled 3 days in Bukhara and 2 in Samarkand. Is this balance about right? Any opinions welcome.
Thanks in advance
Hi, I have two connecting domestic flights in Uzbekistan (Namangan-Tashkent and Tashkent-Bukhara, both booked with Uzbekistan Airways), with changing time in Tashkent for 1 hour and 10 minutes. Does someone know if this is enough?
And also important, if the luggage will be automatically transferred to the second stop, or will I have to pick it up in Tashkent airport and then check it in again?
I am very curious to hear about your experiences.
Thanks for replying!

I've just received a message fron someone in Uzbekistan who wants to host my girlfriend and I. Her profile indicates that she's hosted before. I hadn't planned on couchsurfing in Uzbekistan as I was under the impression that staying in someone's home us illegal. But is the reality different? Do locals host anyway, and never get in trouble anyway?
All advices are welcome.
About a month ago, the Uzbek embassy moved to a new location. It is now about 3 miles south of Moskva street, on Mira/Manas street. There are various marshrutkas (265, 266, 295 and others) and bus no 8 that go that way.
You have to get off at the stop for Oxford International School. The stop is on the west side of the road. It took me almost 2 hours to find it yesterday. Hopefully, this information will make it much easier for you.

next week I am leaving for Uzbekistan. My flight is scheduled to land at Tashkent Airtport at 6:15 a.m. on Saturday. Later in the evening, at 7 p.m., I will leave again from Terminal 3 to Nukus. I would be grateful if you could reply to the following questions.
Will I be able to check-in my luggage for the evening flight in the morning? If not, I will have to carry my luggage all day long. Not a big deal, but if I can avoid it...
If the answer to question 1. is yes…
I have a few questions…
I intend to go trekking for 10 days in the mountains in the southeast of the country, about 50km NE of Baysun. It looks like some of our intended route is likely to fall in the Gissarskiy state nature reserve (http://www.protectedplanet.net/11829), although I don’t intend to stray too near any borders.
- will I need a travel permit, and if so, how do I get these?
- How does trekking fit in with the daily registration process? - I don’t want to be lumped with a…
i am planning on getting into Uzbekistan by land coming from Osh in Kyrgyzstan. what is recommended to do in terms of money-changing? i suppose the taxi i take to Andijon/Fergana on Uzbek side will want to get paid in soum.
can i change money directly after having crossed the border for a decent rate? or will i have to wait until i arrive in either Andijon or Fergana (i am not sure yet where I will stay the night) before being able to change money.
also, a bit more general question: is it…
