Exchange Uzbek sum in Kyrgyz som?

Postby Celiou.g » Tue Jul 18, 2017 3:30 pm

Hello,
I'm actually on my way to Kyrgystan from Uzbekistan but i still have many sums wich are quiet impossible to exchange in dollars from here. So i'm wondering if any of you had this problem before and could change it in som in Osh or evene Bishkek?
Thank you

From http://caravanistan.com/money/uzbekistan/:

Also note that Uzbek sum is completely worthless outside of Uzbekistan and you will have a very hard time to exchange it back. So do not take out too much money and spend what you have before you leave.

In other words, maybe someone will offer you some money for it if you look hard, but it will not be much.

In deed. I found some people at the border keen to exchange my soum in som but the rate was very low... however i saw in Osh some banks welling to change it too ( not better rate ) so if other prople are wandering the same question you get an answer. As Steven said, it's better to spend everything before, but in the case that you cant its not completly lost.
