Hello, I arrive in Tashkent next Saturday the 16th, and I have 11 full days in Uzbekistan. I believe I have time for the three principal Silk Road cities and a day or two in Tashkent, plus something additional. I was thinking either a day or two in the Ferghana Valley from Tashkent, or Shakhrizabz from Samarkand, or I fly directly to Nukus from Tashkent and do a day trip to the Area Sea area around Moynoq. Currently my itinerary looks like this:
Saturday, 16 June- Fly to Tashkent, arrive…
It is reported that right-hand drive cars are not allowed into Uzbekistan. We drove through the border post between Beineu and Kungirot with no problems. While we couldn't find diesel between the border and Khiva, it is plentiful thereafter, especially at Lukoil stations. Lonely Planet is being a bit hard on the Shaherazade hotel in Khiva. We had a lovely time there and, while the breakfast may be "weird" as you say, it is delicious and beautifully served.
I will be visiting khazakstan and uzbekistan this september and cant seem to find any up to date info about the actual presence of shipwrecks or shipyards in the moynaq area. Can anyone who have been there recently update me?
Hi guys, just wondering if anyone has the easiest way to get to Tashkent from Bishkek.
Which is the easiest route to get there? We looked at heading back into Kazakhstan and crossing the border from Shymkent. Has anyone does this journey or can offer advice...
How safe are the airlines? Info would be super helpful :D
Hi, I am planning to attend the Sharq Taronalari Music Festival in Samarkand this year 2018. Does anyone know if the dates are confirmed yet? It seems that it usually happens in August, but any idea about this year?
Appreciate any other information about the festival as well. Thanks!
In the lonely planet Usbekistan is mentioned that it might be a problem to carry on medicines especially painkillers and sleeping pills, such as can be misused as drugs.
What is your advice, how to carry my first aid medicine like anitbiotics for diarroeha, aspirins, pills against sickness and similar things. Usually packages are labeled in english oder german.
Thanks for answers
I will be travelling to Samarkand, Bukhara & Khiva in September. I am not great at learning languages, although I always try to make the effort to at least learn a few words.
I was wondering what language I should try to learn before travelling there. I had been thinking of learning some Russian, but I read that only about 15 % of the population speaks it fluently
