Book hotels in advance?

Postby PaulineC » Wed Mar 15, 2017 8:57 pm

Hi everyone,

We are a couple & we plan to visit Uzbekistan & Tajikistan during 3 weeks in August 2017.
I would like to know how busy is the season at this period of the year ? Do we have to book our hotels / homestay in advance ?
Or is it better to wait & go directly to the hotel ( and bargain :) ) ?

Many thanks for your help !
Pauline

Hi Pauline,

you can get better deals if you go directly to the hotel, with the exception of Dushanbe/Tashkent. If you have your heart set on a specific place to stay in Samarkand and Bukhara, you need to book in advance, but if you are ok with whatever is available, you have bargaining power.

Is that the same in Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan as well? I'm so hoping - basically having to book 3 weeks of hotels in China is doing my head in!

You cannot bargain in KG or KZ but there is always space.
