How much money do you need to travel Central Asia? It all comes down to what kind of traveller you are, obviously. Generally speaking we can say that, although prices in Central Asia for food and accommodation are low, traveling in the region is not necessarily a bargain. Visas, large distances, mountain transport, registration restrictions, … it all adds up.
Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan are the best value for money. Prepare to spend a bit more in Uzbekistan and Tajikistan. Turkmenistan is the most expensive of the lot. See the links below for a full exploration and examples of costs and prices.
