Getting There & Away
The easiest way to visit is by hiring a driver/taxi in Turkestan; it costs around 8000T round trip to visit the two sites.
It's also possible to visit from Shymkent, though it's considerably further away. Minibuses (800T, 2½ hours) to Shauildir leave about hourly, 7am to 6pm, from Shymkent’s Samal bus station. Shared taxis from Samal cost 1200T.
There's no direct public transport between Shauildir and Turkestan, but a one-way taxi costs about 4000T including an hour's stop at Otyrar-Tobe.
