Re: Azerbaijan to Russia

I crossed from Azerbaijan (Quba) to Russia (Derbent) 2 days ago. From Quba, I got in a shared taxi to Samur for 10 manat (didn't bargain hard so you may get a better price). At the border, there is a huge queue of trucks but pedestrians or normal cars pass them. The Azeri side is quite quick, x-ray ...

Re: Caspian sea ferry updates & questions

I took the ferry from Aktau to Baku. Really recommend the use of marinetraffic.com, as you can easily see when a passenger ship is on the way from Baku to Aktau. I spent 2 days waiting for a boat. 8 (7292) 44 50 18 is the number of the ferry complex in Aktau. It can be useful in case you arrive in t...

Re: Embassy report : Russian visa in Shanghai

From an agency I got the voucher and also a paper detailing the program of my trip.
About plane tickets, I only had the way out. On the program of my trip it was specified "crossing Russian border by train" so I didn't need to show any ticket.

Re: Irkeshtam pass report – Kashgar, Xinjiang to Sary Tash, Kyrgyzstan

Crossed the border a week ago. Not much to add, we were 6 people who went through the Chinese checkpoint in the morning. So your chances of sharing a taxi are good at this time of the year. 400 yuans/car from Chinese checkpoint to the border and then 8000 som/car from the border to Osh Just take the...

The price of tourist vis...
