Corrupt Police

I was thinking of bringing cash only on my trip with credit cards as a back-up. Any suggestions?

A brand, spanking new train started service between Tashkent and Andijon on the 05/Septembet/2016. It leaves Tashkent at about 8 a.m., and takes about 6 hours to get to Andijon. It stays there about an hour and heads back. It gets into Tashkent at about 21.21.

It replaces the service that ran a similar route, but stopped about 3 years ago. This new service avoids Tajikistan.

Has anyone done the crossing in between Uzbekistan and Mazar-e Sharif lately? If so, could you give any tips about transport and which city it took to do the crossing, if via Samarkand?

Hi everyone !

Reading many past posts I'm still confused....How feasible is it to cross the border in Hojeli or Urgench and go to Turkmenistan to Darvaza?
I guess we would need a transit visa for Turkmenistan and a double entry for Uzbekistan? Also could we easily find a tour agency in Nukus to help us do that or can we handle by ourselves?
Thanks a lot in advance for your advice
Cheers
